Publication today in the Foundling Review! Happy Monday!

 

Your skin, a permanent bathtub
wrinkle. I fold it back,
watch the years struggle
to glow through dull spots
in rough patterns.

You haven’t forgotten your war stories.

Always watching, eyes
alive like broken windows,
scattered under a
milky-curtain residue.

I should’ve known you wouldn’t remember me.
