Red Giant Leap (MoscowKarina Borowicz



Sun pours through the red star

a window of burnt sugar


five points triumphant cartwheel over the city

because that's what rubies do


when liquefied and spit into a frozen sky

have you tried the cherry-flavored all-day suckers


a white moon stain bleeds through the red star

which tirelessly transmits its red code:


nature's rainbow of crimson can't touch this

I'm redder than that


five pricks of novocain  

will ease the ache that cuts through sleep


as you gaze from a decaying balcony

at a twinkle in the devil's bloodshot eye.
