dead girl

By Emma Geller

small town secrets-
clasp death
in lockets churning.

and marshy tides 
wash clean
her pale hands-

it happened too early,
this little girl could’ve been
a mother.

but pure, 
she faded.
locked in time, 
she left earth,
for heavenly places.

dog star

By Emma Geller

pebble tears,
all mountain eyed, 
in early lush
spring afternoon-

where symbolism
mingled with 
the knotted roots
of that day.

the black dog
crept closer to me,
not soft eyed but 
all teeth, out to prey

with a darkwood 
lurch, 
i got stuck 
in a solar city,

surrounded by
dogwood docks-
lunging 
at the waves.

summer kill

By Emma Geller

chipped blue
paint, rain tracks 
& sad eyes,

she wandered thru
abandoned parking lots, 
under the humid summer sky-

the pavement
crashing 
on those lonely
yellow lines.

sweetheart

By Emma Geller

in the bar, her silver
hips swirl 
in circles,

across cement floors,
on tables too. 
a velvet flick

of her wrist 
reflects neon
Blue Moon signs.

of her wrist 
reflects neon
Blue Moon signs.

an eyelash 
of destiny, 
whispering fortunes 
in her ears-

singing her songs 
of cracked stars 
& broken hearts.

teeth

By Emma Geller

i hope this cut scars,
so i can remember
your wild ways, 
those

zombie stitches,
yellow skin.
your open wound
with teeth edges-

i want you to leave 
your mark on me.
though we never touched, 
your bite still bleeds.

Nature unchained

By Emma Geller

I

the cat wanders by—
finds the end of her nine lives, 
in sticky sidewalks long empty.

II

the coyote howls
in the pale desert sand,
the wise man does too.

III

the moon wails to the sea,
a pearled old longing,
in their hug, they form the tide. 

IV

she walks alone, away—
splitting the highway,
the deer lay.

V

cherry blossoms rain
on her grave, springtime’s 
veil turning—into garlands.
