The Shaft

(Copyright 1995, 2012 Dee Fairbanks Simpson - From unpublished manuscript, "Confessions of a Fat Starving Artist")

have two doors
to keep you
from falling
seventeen floors,
but if I fall
and crack my head
shattered body,
broken, dead,
bits and pieces
toffee bar
like the muskrat
‘neath my car
my body twisted,
a purple hue,
it couldn’t feel worse
than loving you.
