Immunosuppression

By J. Bradley

There are organs missing in this apartment, the plaque of paintings
and prints licked clean from walls like arteries while the nailheads wish they had palms to cover their baldness.  I cannot repair the
malpractice of goodbye, only wear towels like smocks to clean up the pool of hangers on the carpet without risk of infection.  The closet is a throat; it forgets the word ‘white’.
