Molly R. Sullivan



out the door

at the end

she unfolds a trap

destined for her belly

a place

still and quiet

no floor

just pink insulation

curling around

to support her

like the dream

she will never realize

A dream determined

to be faint and distant

abandoned here

over the years


dreamt many times over

and yet hardly recognizable
