Sonnet V
Justin Marks

Dreaming in the driver’s seat

and an acute fear

of buttoning my jacket  The rest

on the cutting room floor

Just say what to do and it will be

summer  Wondrous

Soft and fuzzy  I don't mean

to make no fuss

Truth is a traffic accident

in which bones break

the skin  Procrastination

in a foreign language

Betrayal of one’s best instinct

I saw a femur once
