Erin Martin

orpheus, little whore, god bless you for mermaids,
favorite zero, saddle horn, satellite muse, I still
have your minor chord, your slit throat, the gesturing
hand. pocketer of jack of trades.      rosary,
crucifix, doppelganger of uncanny resemblances. owner
of every red car I see.      tumbler of dice, splitter of
hairs, apostrophes, ears, etc.      breaker of ice,
hearts, things left in gloveboxes.      oui in ouija.
scheherazade, sheepskin worn to shear, heartbeat,
oversleeper, unsolved blank in every game of hangman
on the roof.
