A weak bird sings Dusk while the email scripts: Wait!

A girl rolls over in her skates, falling beachwise.
You know

she bleeds ahhhhh, unlike
the bird,
a stepped-on toy we bought at Goodwill.

It's another front page 
that pronounces her bikini slaver on toast.

                                                            Waiting to read it
is the new smoking. Send? A Danish
with loquat is one in the bush. He waits.

She adjust the signature line,
heels over head. Who will fly?

The script
wishes to restate: My goodness, my morals.

            There in the dusk, a goodwill wheel.
Pronounce walk, not roll. Better, text it.
