Like a Broken Cartoon by Jessica Pollard

Like a broken cartoon,

luscious bones the muscle queen
and the factory of my eyes
makes a gladness.

for the starched sky,

for some automotive whoa,

and by garden light
a grooving moon-cream
love croons out:

there is a plethora of angels within me,
my blood is only silk scarves and honey.
