A Reblog of, “The Eddies”–House of Heart

He smiled and said he was lonely,

let’s  go for a ride down by the dunes.

Retracting the top of his new convertible

we sped along freeways and dark back roads

while the radio blared Louie Louie.

I remember the sea wall and  drinking straight

from the bottle until the swallow no longer burned.

The moon and the stars sunk down behind his shoulder

and my stifled cries  drowned in the Sea.

While my father slept I scrubbed  my bruises

watched  pools of red eddy at the drain.

You think I’m no body

but I’m not just somebody whose all alone.
