levona’s life

god has blue eyes &
Artwork by Gene McCormick jesus too
she said & added: all spiritual things
have sad blue eyes that
sometimes spin in their sockets

continuing she
said ordinary people have ordinary
black & brown,
the sleepy dirty colors

the she sat back down & laid her
head on the desk
hiding her eyes with
long matted blonde hair

she slept a deep spastic sleep &
the professor lectured in hushed tones-
no one wanted to
wake her
