Lexington

They made a product out of grief,
Surfaced lower lurking teeth,
An out-surviving mother’s briefed.

A promise, props, facsimiles,
Curses labelled remedies,
Justice in subscription fees.

How many others seek their rest
On death row in a grocer’s mess;
How many more might confess

For future crimes immersed
And later studied in reverse
Within a popcorn universe.
