  1. the leap of imagination here is like the skipped beat of the heart – read this several times for sheer enjoyment
    “breaking
    my heart like a highway at night” – wow! (sorry I hate that word but it says more than it exclaims)

  2. This is what I love about short poems–they cut quick and deep, just like the broken glass slivers in a lover’s eyes, and freeze you in place like a long black highway to hell. Or so I read, and blather–a fine poem, and every image rings true.

  3. I have a friend who has a glass eye. Scary at times. Her husband was a mess, a bugger, but he turned a new leaf. They’ve moved away but he and I are FB friends. Unlike your heroin she was passive and tolerant of her man.

  4. “Your glass eye(s) breaking
    my heart…”
    The desperation of looking but not seeing is so well developed. Nice one qbit.

    Happy New Year

    Much love…

  5. love is not blind
    in your arms the shivers and slivers
    clear and bright

    How nice qbit! A piece of loving care to warm the heart amidst all the ‘upheavals’ of 2021. Hoping for good things in the ensuing year ahead!
