Tell me, about when you danced with Turtles

Tell me about the dance in tall heels

The way you and your dark ankles

Went through arrows of stages


How late it was when we got lost

In a store of boxes and turtles

They were falling off shelves

Like offbeat rhythms              falling

Off shelves in their barbie boxes

Biting at those ankles, in hard shells

Broken beak green

Biting at invisibility


Tell me you took the

Shoes off before crushing


Ashes and stone

Tell me,

Where did those turtles go?
