The Cancellation Of Time

Poems by Paula Grenside

When winds destroy woods,
life lies on butterfly wings,
masked sex fools with bulging eyes,
time tightens noose-ties.
He said
later I'll wear a crumpled coat
over my tomorrow's yesterdays.
I'll cut the now with distant blades.

On the floor, 1 button with 4 bullet holes
and dust of present time.
