At the corner of hope and glory

Robert Beveridge

 

She stands

on the corner

in her metallic

blue dress

which hugs her

like the dressing

on a wound

like a beacon

to the cars

 

she's an actress

from Topeka

come here

to find work

 

she is astonished

to find all her johns

are film producers

 

 


Robert Beveridge makes noise (xterminal.bandcamp.com) and writes poetry just outside Cleveland, OH. Recent/upcoming appearances in Chiron Review, Zombie Logic Review, and The Literateur, among others.
