Broken Tooth

Montgomery’s smile revealed the broken tooth
but none of the blood
Gerry swore and swung again
but the outcome was never as predicted

Alice premeditated and medicated down
sat swaying in her silent room
while the light dimmed slightly
her eye twitched a morse response

I slipped the pill under my tongue
to feel disolve in serenity
My mind was tar spread on the night
my hands caught crows as they swept by

He took the car to gather sheep
and bits of broken landscapes
We can squeeze them from tubes as red and blue
and yellow on white and black horizons

My tongue can feel the broken tooth
but not the blood
I swear I’ll win the next round though
I’m ready for the bell.Image
