SLOTS, Nicole Hospital-Medina

Slots
by Nicole Hospital-Medina

there are more squares inside the painting.
little worlds to peer into, with little oceans
and video games like DMT or Miami sky-
lines in the morning. pick a square and win
something. pick a square and lose it. follow 
the seagull to the next bouncy square where 
you might win another cube of glass or a tank
full of mermaids. PING. ZING. the painting 
is a square. the eye glasses are a square. 
tomorrow is a square along with yesterday.
buy a piece of beach. wipe off the smudges.
watch it through the window of a square.
only the squares and squares with nothing.
