Keith Letky | new year’s day (happy new year)

behind the bedroom window bodies spent

of fuck lay sprawled in bed without a sheet

the lipstick smeared like shooting stars from ear

to ear and underwear on inside out

 

beyond the bedroom door the kitchen floor

so sticky with liquor and beer its steals

the shoes the socks and skin of clumsy feet

in need of water ‘tween the heaves of dawn

 

behind the bathroom door in circles swim

the molted skins of snakes all phallus-shaped

in porcelain reflecting future eyes

and muddled by a thimbleful of bile

 

beyond the bedroom window on the street

stiletto heels though jilted they remain

too sober still for drunken journeys home

so still they dance away on asphalt floors
