Untitled #1

I’m not in the habit of leaving poems untitled, nor am I in the habit of playing with line breaks and a poem’s visual form. This came to me a few moments ago, and after a little revision, I’ve decided to leave it as it is and ignore the critic inside me screaming, “Give it a title and left-justify the thing, you moron!” Incidentally, the visual aspects of the poems didn’t translate to WordPress, just the font color. Ah, well.

do not fool yourself

the bumper sticker read
and I punched my head
damn it

while I waited for the light
to turn green
but it stayed

red as blood

red as sin

red
red
red
green

and I exploded
as if just born
determined finally
to go somewhere
