a pause for humor. you communists.

by Rachelle Howe

you are a mannequin.
your eyes drone inward and skyward,
the holes drilled into sockets, impurity.
i have been thrust in you.
i have been muted again.

you walk me, a dog.
i bite your ankles, you yelp.
(life has a funny irony when it's
kicking you in the ass.)

'life has a funny irony'...yes, you start at something and end up doing something else. You resolve to do something and end up doing just the opposite

life wouldn't be life if it wasn't ironic.

intended or not, this has a lovely sence of shrugging shoulders in the face of utter despair. congratulations. or maybe i've just been watching too much "hedwig and the angry inch."
