Parts Of My Face

March 17, 2014 at 5:27 pm (Dominic Alapat, Poetry)

 

were falling on the road

in the evening

first my eyes went

they rolled away into the concrete dream

then my nose fell into a gutter

and my jaw shook

from left to right

up and down

till it just vanished

now I was truly hollow

my faces just a folder of faded dreams

falling into the darkness

one by one they went

with no sense of themselves

and the whole locality was so quiet

like it was somewhere else

under some other moon.
