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.
