Vespucci’s Lost Daughter

Lost America: Night Photography by Troy Paiva | Inspiration Grid ...

She’s lost
naked
dead
hasn’t eaten
fat
late
over
overdue
hooked
sick
broke
strapped
trapped
it’s happened
stranded
sad
she’s looked at
in the hole
in a cult
Christian
He’s not coming back
the letters can’t save her
the movies aren’t real
the television is a terrible book
the link
it began
it’s later than she knows
when to stop
it’s a comedy
the joke
none of it is funny
she’s the fucking punchline
it’s done
how to read
how serious
how else
herself
we don’t all want her
we don’t all hate her
it’s bullshit
the signs
she’s pretty
yeah, real pretty
but it’s not real meat
she’s ugly
she’s had more a-bombs detonated on her sorry ass than everyone else even those yellow slanty-eyed Japs in 45
she did it
there are ruins down in Mexico
to dance
the jazz
but now she’s jacked on shit
she’s leaving
it all came to this.
So, will she do it?
