Lack in the Face

I am undone with a sequence of dreams
and a trip over tiles
spelling _OUR_ON at the corner of St. Ann
as I smack lip gloss rainbows
into deflated balloons
red with MAGA
bound in pastel shades of ribbon
faded with piss
coiled around a Heineken
broken at the neck
at the edge of the French Quarter.
