GUEST BLOG...POETRY! "Story Lines" by Dennis Patrick Slattery

    How far is true enough? ~Jori Graham

Appear everywhere.
          Where does the violent plot
of your life cut itself in two?
          Or in scraps to spread
its bewildered parts
          throughout each room
shuddering on its own foundation?
          Plot lines run hidden underground
yet surface in the cracked ceiling plaster
          and along the walls of your bedroom
alarming sleep.
          Lines perturb like itches
or fresh stitches uniting skin
          healing its tattered texture.
It’s not a child of mine
