allegories, cigs and curry
by Gretta Descamp


a pair of shoes wait by the door
the air tastes like curry and she
can't remember the last time she ate.

today a tiny paper cut
bleeds everything away from the core
but last night she believed in love
in a greek man's allegory
and the naming of body parts.

now she shivers
watches her hands shake
fumbling and unsteady as they
hold the cigarette to her lips.
