You Make Me

those gobs

of greenish muck

that slide off your tongue

in petty,

privileged,

lumps,

make me yearn for

the sight of humiliation and

soupy mutilation

So Tired

by fyarlgiles

I’m so tired

of spitting up  pinkish chuckles

and periwinkle grins

for the sake of polite

conversation and

I am so tired of

those blunted, whispering pains

just above my belly button-

where acid has swallowed my

parties

and my

friends

and my

life -as it was-

And I’m so tired

of leaving this room and walking out

into a world where there is too much sunlight

because Iamsotired and

I  just want

to

rest.

She is

glitter-coral nail polish

chipping

like the white on an aging picket fence–

no more lavender ribbons

or dainty satin shoes

to protect

her virgin skin

from the dirt

of the earth.

Just the

picked

and peeled remains

of
