She Looks Better - Poem by Joseph Narusiewicz

Nothing has changed
She sleeps under the Stonebridge
Long structure like a snakes skeleton
Her eyes like the night-lights of Paris
I try so hard to penetrate
The city has a huge morgue

We are the inheritors of Kafka
Dreams of Dali
All the towers have art
Everyone seems high on hustle
Everyone sleeps in foggy shelters
The East River looks like a witch

Long Island doesn’t want bipolar painters
Her social worker still smokes
Her kid is on antidepressants
Orthodox Jews go to bed early
Winter is coming like a new Broadway play
She tells me she has gone celibate

She looks better, she quit her free therapy
