Step Over

Evelyn Posamentier

step over the same plush dog on the nuthouse floor.
step under the sign which directs you nowhere.

only the girl in the photo can mess with sideways.
basic rules of composition have taken flight.

i thought i would feel calm in the quiet house:
walls of brain's scans where the staircase rises.

disease holds all the cards.
the party downstairs continues.

brain is constant as the plush dog.
the girl in the photo has moved on.
