NaPoWriMo Two Oh Oh Nine!


A twisted hometown
is knotted up
over a dead Canadian:

the candor of his neighbors
echos off the supermarket tile
into his mother's ears,

and down here
we're talking openly
about the way he lived,

some of us know,
some can't imagine,
but we all shake our heads:

what a shame, what a
waste, what's the latest
from your hometown?

I once worked at that grocery store and we would throw heads of lettuce at the ventilation fans just to watch them explode.
