stagger

one sock
a tab of bubblegum
stuck
from the hot sidewalk
beneath staggered steps
the sweat dripping
magnifies
the cruel glare of
the infernal eye
in the sky

one bloody footprint
leading from
the scene of the crime
the setting
where once upon a time
died
a gurgling death
choking
on the tears of
disenchantment
