I Feel Fine

Posted: October 20, 2017 in Uncategorized

My curdled skin stretches against emerging muscle
I sag and I creek my girders grind my sockets pop
but somehow the skeletal structure maintains integrity
the foundation never sure ever shaky supports it
the mind looking down on it all complains.

I feel faint I feel fine I feel sad beholding my fissured features
the mirror is no longer my friend fashion mocks me
I’m in an arid desert hidden within a tropical paradise
the path through the jungle that led here is laden with fruit
the sweet taste lingers on these parched lips.

  1. the sweet taste lingers…
