Dead Doll Eyes



Dolls positioned 
equidistant in a car
the exact size of Kansas,
a charity case.

Late-afternoon... eventide...

Four dolls positioned in terms of
disengagement,
each staring out its
personal window,
dead doll eyes scanning,
scanning for Japan,
as their car,
the exact size of Kansas,
a charity case,
barrels.

One dolls nods,
its eyes dull:
dead doll eyes.

Night envelopes.

A Mack truck, down the highway approaches,
its headlights eat
the road,
burn the stars...
