JUSTIN HYDE

Redo

do you know
how many years
of therapy
i've been through?
says a tattooed guy
to an egg faced blond
on his left.

he's intoxicated
past the point
of discourse.

she holds
his hand
leans her head
against his.

therapy.

as if we've
interpreted the world
wrong all these years.

as if
we could have
done anything
differently.

as if we
aren't all
dung-pile orchids

plucked

&

dropped onto
the high-wire
in a
stiff wind.


Justin Hyde lives in Iowa where he works with criminals. He has a web-page here: http://www.nyqpoets.net/poet/justinhyde
