Brandy Bockewitz

five more laps
and no more carbs
little black dress

closing my eyes
but still reading his lips

heartbroken teen
on halloween
bite size wrappers everywhere


walking past the marker
that holds him beneath
tears no longer stream

back in town
craving homemade candy
lot empty


her children at home
the woman sits alone
in the church pew

she can barely walk
but i don't want another


my favorite record
s k I p s
over and over

my keyboard
missing an
but sti using it

a candle's flame
wanting only more

tick tock
fixed again
grandpa's clock


pitch black
i fall
into the toilet

kite flying
the small boy
runs for the string
