In the elevator of the nightly named Bruise Hotel your mother points to her stomach and says

A fish they'll say
made of sea 
lightning
as if it's not 

all 
sea lightning.

Here if you see a bowl
outside

go to it

Leave pain in its blank heaven.

Let touch

Change dreams

The angel of eye-level
loses
a crucifix.

Attraction has no children.

A pear
is remembered
in half. Music

knows only 
the locksmith's 
lullaby 
of deep 

looking.

I love about this place
the abandoned weather.
