She Speaks Truth on Youtube

I hope she knows who she is.

It was in Romania, this much I know;

Lens flare took her

Stretched taut, cross-continental sprawl

Whipped by saline drifts, the marks

Bleaching delusions, old dreams –

A book on a bedside curls.

Take that ankh, and keep it set

Between a clavicle that struck five chords

                            – an interjection, quizzical –

Straight up to the viewer – leave a comment

If you will, I’ll make your tongue

Change shape.
