Self Portrait in Seven

by Christopher Morgan

a broken printer
spamming the same sentence:
“still trying my best”
a boy in a suit
exploring his dark room
when nobody’s home
a stork hunched over
pretending to be tiny
in a gator’s mouth
a worn book
missing its cover
slowly burning
a flower wilting
despite overabundance
of sunlight
a blurred overcoat
rising behind your seat
while you’re driving
a fence-bound crow
squawking encouragement
with its throat slit
