SHIRA SEGAL

 

 

 

shira tells it like it is

 

i’m not afraid

to say i’m

against

 

faith-based people.

i’ll scream

it from the top

 

of Devil’s Thumb.

woe is me,

my ass.

 

 

 

shira is kissed with wishes

 

since wishes come from

helium

inward

roses

and

incessant

slight

killings of

interiority,

since

seashell

explosions

doubt

wisher’s

insecurity,

trees

hold

water

inside

succulent

heaven

exteriorized

slightly
