One thought on “THE LAST PAIR

  1. So thrilled to read poetr-art, pict-a try. I know there’s a name that escapes me now. But the disjunction of the words from their letters mirrored the content of habits, apparel, thoughts that damage, debilitate, and often destroy–or at least dis-join us. I enjoyed the play/pain juxtaposition.
