What’s Happening With Russia by Steven Storrie

She spits in the sink and
It sounds like New York

I wonder how my high school
Football team is doing
What’s happening with Russia?
I hope Bob Dylan makes more records
And that Hollywood endures

My heart breaks like a window
Chips like ice
In the reverberations of a sunset
Complaints like bleeding feedback
From a stray guitar
Lurch through my mind
Punching tickets at every stop
As they go

I wonder how my high school
Football team is doing.

Seriously
What’s happening with Russia?

Steven Storrie has worked as a cable T.V repair man, dishwasher, choreographer, ice cream vendor and junk yard attendant. Tired of this he is currently locked in his basement working on his first full collection of poetry, bickering with his neighbours over nothing and storing the baseballs he keeps when they are hit into his yard. His first collection of short stories, We Are Not The Kids We Used To Be, will be released in November by DevilHouse Press. You can find him at the website he runs, ‘Black Coffee For Breakfast’, at http://renegadepriest11.wix.com/blackcoffeebreakfast
