Irene Koronas

 

 

(USA)

 

 

 

an ordinary day

 

I expose my breast

the right one cut off

so I can aim my bow and arrow

my urgent need to put pen to vellum

I stuff my bra with newspaper

my ugly turtle neck sweater

 

I waltz toward the canvas target

mozart and thelonius monk

 

silver foil wet with dying

i replicate yesterday’s motions

 

my ray gun and neon sign flashes on and off

 

what happen to the arrow-my young breasts

glinting music and armadillos

drawn in the dark
