Stacey Allam & John M. Bennett

Shirt Lens

Speak the shirt
blinded by the wicks
in a thought bubble
and the buttons falling
from clouds
chips clinking
in your blurry glasses
fanning out the nosebuds
hear the passing air


A rotten harp nude of
what's smoothed
the corner of a plucked
gland sandwich shining
on the floor
that I didn't know
which stump was bigger
was it leg or eggplant
or anything else that
could nick its heals
as high

Stacey Allam is originally from Rego Park, Queens, New York, but has resided in Brooklyn for many years. She has been writing poetry most of her life.
