Ava C. Cipri

Linda Gray

 

her story:
she testified
there in the van’s glove compartment of summer

a holy man
a wild child
a savior
a psychic
a minor hero

the photo of a murder:
headlights flashing and leaving the guns
below the funhouse

one lie: she hardly mentioned dancing at the circus

Carney Bullshit

 

because I wanted the beach
because I wanted to fly
because I believed all those years

my words …………..lungs and heart

there were nothing under there
touching another world
