She eats fear with morning coffee
chunks of ash, black in her mouth
between delicate fingers
mixed with a trickle
from her cheek to spread
on burnt toast
About LW Lindquist
By day, I'm a claims adjuster. I help people and insurance companies make sense of loss. When I'm not crunching numbers or scaling small buildings, you can find me here, designing business and author websites and making WordPress and MailChimp easier for you, or you at Tweetspeak Poetry where I'm an editor.
