Inside His Head On The Moon

Neila Mezynski

Crack in sidewalk where it's safe, waiting serpent tongue, might be dinner.

Hair on face five miles bad road. Saw her smile telling him things but that was all. Don't get close enough to carry drop package she'll see something they both get scared. Keep moving. Sit five minutes. Brain snap crackle jump up body and all. Ram rod back held straight near safe star, crack on walk. Maybe one day he'll do more than wave.

Neila Mezynski is the author of Glimpses, a collection of short fiction from Scrambler Books, a pamphlet from Greying Ghost Press, an e-chap from Caper Literary Journal and three chapbooks from Mud Luscious Press, Folded Word Press and Short Fast and Deadly in 2011.
