Motel ∞

He was her emotional


a crutch

that fixes
the worst kept

(impeccable dream)


to a•Muse

for a rhyme

as she—he

but her tricks

>while heady<

left her

crumpled as

towels long thrown

tacky, too

like neOn

arrowing eXits

from an

eLephant show

pink, grey,

in house & out

but stage struck by grieF

a hard act to follow with credible bravado,

Hotel California…


caned her, but collected her,

like those little shampoos

and soaps you never use–

curtain-calling the lather of a

1 man show.
