Nails on the Board

plastic plants,

porcelain pets,

a jungle of energetic decay,

where the external

is a painted

blue liner and rouge,

mask.

with palid stagnation,

the white hem drags 

itself red in the clay.

moths chew ragged edges

in the floral tapestry 

of fragile lace,

and death waits 

in the cedar closet

for all that no longer 

serves..
