We Were Never Little in Del Ray
by 2012 Patricia Louise McGurk
you will not make me run in terror
the insects are still singing
my tongue is swollen
as the hard cement bed street
under me must have lead in it
while a starless sky above me
sinks at the dawn state
not an erotic torture site
"Alexandria Birko" someone called
the Del Ray area
but numbed hips and heroin
earlier tykes in strollers
awaited being in
your briefcase
I do things without God
each day every day all these years
without you
the god of the state, even
I do things to avoid Auswitz screams
I do almost most of things
with and without compunctions
what are compunctions?
without desire I do things
except this - run when my legs
are numb
Terror has a red mouth
and a big hole
I run in terror Correo Correo
while my legs do not work
do not move in a standing up
prison - I wait for the incarceration
unlawful and I cannot leave
as I normally would
Swollen tongues are eloquent
belonging to Unwitting heroes
of the Revolution no one is having
we were your parents some of us
The Disabled
cannot run with numbed leadened
legs on hard U.S. Streets and swollen lips
cannot speak or scream for help
Empty wheelchairs remain in apartments
I hear as Vestiges of the Dead
I slip around you
a slip of a girl in a silver wheelchair
thirteen years old
Doves run in the summer grasses
with morning light
while the drool on my mouth is forgotten
among rivers of blood
around me
is it my blood?
Do they still call the woman's blood issue?
Is that my head cracked open?
in the morning summer feelings?
such a contradiction to live through
too painful to remember often
no one will come to help you
you dictated publicly to me
this time you will be there and
die alone
incarcerated Like I Said
the man did say and you did not
obey the man
Ghostly smokestacks peer at me
behind the twilight screens
like geisha movies in front of me
The Big Tokyo Screen
screamed at the newborn baby
chimney shapes elongated in Del Ray
as I lie here immobilized due to hunger
on a Del Ray Alexandria Virginia
sidewalk dirty with big black bugs
you don't see in the day
the sky flashing like lightning
in an eerie storm
a dry storm flashing
For this reason I often prefer to run
from terror when the State is Huge
and confronts me
requiring too much courage for me still a girl
the Disabled
who cannot run
then and also now tas the woman paralyzed on the
sidewalk near Aryan skateboards by
my head they aggressed
we simply could not walk away
the Disabled
stood up to you this way
and resisted the internment
when really they could not run nor walk
and the Diplomant could only speakl
since never are they athletes or the In-Crowd
even FDR in a wheelchair
the Disabled Resistance
with a woman's model of passivity
forced while called slandered
as aggressive resisters
I have blisters on my labia
I once said to the police
as a little girl
this is why I cannot leave
I do not have a home and I
have blisters on my vagina
as a man burned me
with what the policeman asked me
"A Zippo lighter, I responded
It wont hurt later as the man
told me I would be in Destiny
later and he would let me stay
a few hours no more than this
in my current location of vagrancy
kiss me goodbye, he said to me
I have pushed you into Destiny
a little girl in Destiny
not unheard of
is euthaniasia in genocide crimes
