UNDERGROUND VOICES: POETRY - 10/2012

LEEROY BERLIN

Rhapsody on a windy life

the wild tango of our youth
left behind interesting stains and
a trail of broken heels
shattered bottles
sharply snapping rubbers
strewn indelibly over priceless rugs
and the burnt out ends of smoking days
anointed our dreams with ashes while
the stale sound of you leaving in the morning
played across the tile floor.


Leeroy Berlin was last seen escaping from a cul-de-sac somewhere in the bowels of Suburbia, Los Angeles CA. He is rumored to have been seen on several isolated Pacific islands, though these reports may not be trustworthy and often contradict each other placing him simultaneously in indistinguishable locations thousands of familiar miles apart.
