001 – Allison Morton

“untitled” by Allison Morton


she looks into a well
she feels the space
running down
into the core of the planet
where it spins and stops and
she remembers photographs in boxes on shelves in the back room
musty carpet and broken windows taped over
puncture holes in her vision
she sees where he sleeps, placid,
dead not dead not anywhere not alive
either but still
so she opens boxes on shelves in the back room where he slept
the well where he hides things
is full
of space
