Black Light #19

July 13, 2017

Each question is a broken

pair of handcuffs,

each answer a kind of escape.

She duct-taped several rubies


to her belly.

They detained her for smuggling,

but the rubies were hers

and had the duct tape


been some sort of cellophane,

the fashion statement would have worked.

There must be a way for color

to radiate underground, tied down,


obscured by dirt, shoddy workmanship

or untempered inspiration.
