Sophie Newsome | Everything is Crooked

Everything is Crooked.

The lamppost limps left

and doesn’t want to screw anymore

like a 40 year marriage.

The coat rack also sways

like a bar-crawl drunk-

Look at the 80 year old man

warped by gravity

and swigging from a

brown, wrinkled bag

through lopsided lips.

He’s wishing for the day

the world once

stood

straight.
