bearded gem

by Steven J. Serafiani

bearded gem- wall sconces and reproduction
art bring him
to

a wallow. the corridor isn’t lined with
darkroom exposures beam and bend
lips.

(museum divorced and two collectors
split the town to grow short and whiskered
gray.

there are numerous ways to waste your
life- numerous passions to take a garrote
to.)

bearded gem- those belonged to a past
mister, then up
for

sale for new birds newly minted with
bald pink coo coming from his old
room.
