5 Poems by Anthony Ilacqua

Cracked Lips

At the art museum
we told each other lies
through cracked lips


Empty Bra

near the poppies
we slept in the grass
and spiders made nests
in the empty bra


 The Dark Side of Town

We read books
late nights
incandescent bulbs
and overflowing ashtrays


Untied Shoes on a Sunday Afternoon

In her room
she put her shoes on
for some reason
she was not dressed otherwise
it was a rainy afternoon
we spoke
of laundry
vaguely of love
and a future
we would not see


Untied Shoes on a Sunday Afternoon

In her room
she put her shoes on
for some reason
she was not dressed otherwise
it was a rainy afternoon
we spoke
of laundry
vaguely of love
and a future
