Avalanches in Poetry Entry by Samantha Merz : Varied Thrush

Champagne diamond pendants

First driving lesson at the age of twenty-seven
You’re gambling with your life by not creeping in

It’s your responsibility
Scolded over a parcel
Emerald girl style to your golden boy

It’s her time
Lady Pity
Her twisted mind
She’s so odd
Mixed up and conflicted
She’s a straw

Sucking the life out of a couple of those who used to be around

Making some low whistle notes
Won’t defend you
Won’t vouch for you
Different perceptions at play
Hibiscus heaven

You told me not to walk so far away from you
