I guess I haven't been directed

I've been doing some writing, but I haven't gotten it onto the blog. I'll try to do better.

Arcane Diner (first draft)

The sign of the ketchup,
bottle upended on bottle,
means renewal by a kiss. Vinyl
is eternal. Whose jawbone
made that coffee cup?
Its pores are yours, a hard thing
that stains and weeps
even as course after course of
paper-capped kids rush to make
everything look clean.
