Stealing Bodies

by KRISTINE ONG MUSLIM






          The city is slowly unraveled
          by what it kills every night,
          by the wounds that are not
          supposed to fester when left
          on their own. This vision of
          permanence is always blurred,
          like the rooftops that have been
          wedged in all that sky and sleeplessness.
          Each being is a furtive miracle naming
          every fast car after a long-dead dream girl.
          Each being is an incomplete grocery list.
          Each being is a paper cut waiting to heal.
