haibun || Sheila E. Murphy
Omens washed the spit side of an omnibus without our incandescent knowing.
Parchment notwithstanding straight talk nimbles its way forth. Indentured servitude on a taut leash chalked with gray sequins. Rashes of ice lose figure- ground relationship as if any noble carnival were missed. Into the divinity we grow shoulders. Taffeta, remunerative sliced teak, and a voice coach recuse themselves from honest feed. A realistic painting made of nesting caulks the corner edge, a kind of skin feel to the library. At this point, skipped beats leave the metro(nome) cold wheat. Curated by the seat of panting and retreat. She says she likes a-lonely naptime. Shores are swindled edge about to dis-.
