The Mean Scars of Summer

by fyarlgiles

 our bruised and battered sky

weeps–

 suspended

in scars

from the passionate strikes of 

a relentless summer heat.

She

is all that remains of a day

too cruel to be unseen.

The Cure

days after

that faint burn

of  pleasant Green swirls into

her lungs–

She is chilled by

a blood-tangled emptiness

That pulls her

into lost weeks

where she is

a crumpled lump

soaking

in her own foul water

She’s Done

by fyarlgiles

246378_10266242_b

I feel the dull but insistent teeth of your dinner fork

tugging at moth holes

in my sun dress

asking for me to be more bare

for you

more raw

for you

and so I let them needle away

until the threads are unknotted

and the cloth falls to the floor, and

I am

all that you want me to be

Cry of the Wicked

by fyarlgiles

1247141_4623495_b

Folded up

in this wrath that

flows like

a river from my lonely gut,

is a purple wound–

unhealed–

that cries and cowers with your children,

pleading for the pain

to die.

Not Stand-up Comedy: Louis C.K.’s “Hello There”

by fyarlgiles

images

“Hello There” starring Ron Lynch, is The first in a series of surrealist shorts C.K. made for Howie Mandel’s Showtime sketch comedy show. I saw it when I was a friendless  junior high school student and  had no idea where it came from, or how I might ever find it again, but I loved it. And I never forgot it.

louie

14 years later, following a 4-day netflix marathon of Louie,  I embarked on a brief but ravenous search for all things Louis C.K.  and there it was.  To this day, it  is my favorite of all his short films.

-Angie

At 1:12, you can catch a young Louis walking by in a sweater and a pair of sunglasses. ENJOY!

Pleasantly Objectified

 You see

her apricot shoulders

dressed with auburn wisps

that —drift—- drift

like feathers into the clouds above.

Hovering over your

hungry stares,

 delighted,

she parts her plum, puckered lips

to free a stirring sigh

that breaks your body

and blurs your mind.

She

is the most heavenly dessert

you will never

taste.

The Grim

by fyarlgiles

961096_14720686_b

A necrotized

claw has sprouted from the

neck of my favorite lace gown.

At first, it was a pool

of strawberry syrup

as bright and red

as a freshly skinned knee–

And then,

under the hanging tangerine fog of a Sunday afternoon,

it melted upward

into a

nagging,

sickled flower

of bloodless quiet

anticipating its reflection

in me.

Lit Mash: The Grasp

Anxiety is love’s greatest killer.

It makes others feel as you might when a drowning man holds on to you;

you want to save him,

but you know he will strangle you with his panic.
