Busted grill

by nils borquist


Strained smile with sewn lips

A blue mouth stitched with fishing line

Laced, an X-mas bow

Glitter stained and bright red

Racing around the dirt

Pie pan swirls cinnamon

the gristle orbits my head

superjumbofudge prods my eye

stick trip to the mud

nose last, hair first

the Indian brave cuts the foamy tomahawk

trampoline temple bullseye

concrete chipped tooth

sunlight stained scarred skull

my bald head shiny dirt tattoo

gateless smile

chocolate sticky fingers
