Broken Analogies

Omission : this poem :: regret :

This poem : the red wheel barrow :: trash :

The sacred : the long line to buy limited edition
Nikes on a fall Tuesday at 10 a.m. :: collectable stamps :

The grape soda in the 99-cent store : the tissue
remanants all over everything after the wash cycle ::

Breaking my daughter’s favorite glass while she’s working
her afterschool job as a cashier : a pot boiling dry on the stove ::

The echo in the abandoned tire rims by the train : a fair
weather attention span :: the bullet-bent beer cans near the garage :

Our relationship :: the ringing in my ears as the earth breathes :
the mud-caked carpets after ten inches of cold, east-blown pellets ::

Cara Murray's poetry is included in the edited collection Systemic Crises of Global Climate Change: Intersections of race, class and gender (Routledge, 2016), has appeared in Platte Valley Review, and is forthcoming in shufPoetry.
