Porcupine by Mary Senier
Beneath a stylus of stars…
pink locks porcupined
smudges where the eyes should be
band tee, obscure
procured painstakingly online
following a fruitless string of
vintage shop investigations
statement-maker, seldom-maker of
seldom-slept-in single bed
… one spinning sheet of vinyl in a field of friends.
