Her love for tar and glitter succeeded him

After Joe left

Shotsy Wore Black

became enchanted with the sparkle night sky

found herself spinning

throwing off chunks of her past

like losing a bad habit

a cigarette snuffed at ignition

Shotsy and her broken concrete wanderings

rain on midnight pavement

streetlight intersected by shadow trees

falling in love with patterns

with rhythms

“The only way to love this world is to take it apart”

Shotsy said

“and look at the spaces in between.”

Shotsy evolved

into an alleyway sprite

a woman capable of generating

multiple reflections

Under the neon heartbeat

of the dive bar window
