Clean Break

David Seung


           He Left                        She Left


   dew on steering wheel                        dirt in fingernails

 knuckles crack white in cold air                        laying down infant gardens

         silence begets tears                        fed by the old rot


        my mother was born

    between perforated grins

         now torn from their mouths






My name is David Seung, and I am an emerging writer from Portland, Oregon.
