Irene Koronas







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
