online poetry workshop



the ex-pat buzz in ra-bu hoteru
bettalpha

they made her sit
 1
back to the glass, tits
 2
pointed out, bridled
 3
by a flesh kimono.
 4
 
 
the light was feeble,
 5
the incense unsettling;
 6
 
 
every pair of eyes
 7
spoke japanese fluently.

the [settling and fluently] almost works, but it's, like, flu-ently, on the last two syllables. it's like tuning in a radio station, where you jump back and forth, and it turns the verse itself into two different announcers. nice experience.
