Dysfunctional Translations - Poem by audra king

Her fingers
Desperately type sincerities-
The simple
Publications of her affection.

Her singer
Looks pretty squawks out of key-
Blame it on
Complications from the brass section.

Her passions
Have been packaged and stored away-
Oh, such an
Unfortunate girl with disorders.

Her ashen
Anemic, white, motionless face,
Tossed out with
Old tapes, and outdated recorders.
