Nothing gold can stay ~ Robert Frost


i am the bearer of misfortunes.
saccharine sweetness melting into
my tangled unkempt hair,
smoke seeping into my epidermis
and cuticles. strangling
the nooses of logic;
analysis of every molecule,
atom, detail. probing of scientific
minds that ponder only upon
fate which twists like a dagger
and destiny which unwinds like
deoxyribonucleic acid strands
nucleotide by nucleotide
falters to mutations

sperm of an inebriated man
dreams too big for a
motherless child. contusions
violet like the stars, clustered
on the edges of the milky way.
nebulous on the fringes of
metamorphosis while
years melt into years like
copper crippling in the fl-fli-flickering
flame. summer bows down to
change, leaves flow away

one bad apple spoils the barrel and
i am the daughter of rotten and messy
waxy skin peels to reveal something
pale, nude, forgotten, inescapable
sewn together with torn tissues are my
muscles contracted
rib cages detached, jarring
heart rattled, shaken, deformed
barrel too minuscule for my burdens
perfume of forgotten snakes ’round me
logic dulls my senses
epitome that there are

exceptions
