Barrio Storm

Twin dogs are barking
for electricity in this sullen neighborhood

men wear lipstick and high heels
to the grocery store

a star is dragging its tail
across the night sky

and each speck of light must be responsible
for its own waywardness

my princess leaves the door wide open
she is naked

I steal a dirty nasty kiss
the dogs have moved on

smashed to smithereens
by something as simple as life

You use very interesting allusions and imagery.
