Into the Blue…

Lot View

Yellow buzz beat
up and down
screens
and she sits,
sweltering hot
in her strapless
tube top.
Fanning cheeks
blushed with
old air and new smoke
while a warming
diet Coke
wets her palms.
And the buzz fly
through the
screen’s wide
holes made
day and night
in rain or light
giving access to views
ironical and cliche.
TV blaring –
music playing –
lot sounds from
around her glory home –
other’s asylums –
leak through gaps
in screens that offer
no refuge
from the buzz.
Swatting out she
puffs on a stick, she
sucks down a drink and
curses the trash
surrounding her world.
