VIII: Poetry by James Diaz & Collage by Greg Hanson, 2


Pigeons In The Bar, Mannequins In The Bathroom

in the push
of fuzzy wind
sea exclaims
you little magnetized shaker


I cost as much as I feel
the size
of California sleepers

once I bit the razor
from the dark
nerve endings
broke the chain
that invented

a snapshot
I’m going through everything
kicked out of bedrooms
and bathtubs
one slap and the whole fucking scene ends.


James Diaz resides in upstate NY, spending his time writing poetry as if his life depends on it, because it does. His forms of survival can be read online at Cheap Pop Lit, Chronogram, Ditch, My Favorite Bullet, and The Voices Project.
