Lashes extended to
Soften mother’s earth
Prowled in a nasty web,
To ooze child’s pain
Nothing left to annihilate;
What she gains
Nagging in the goddess’s lap;
Liberating her from pain
As if silicon lie carved,
Into a vivacious brain.
She self-sabotages her powers
In a fabricated chain
Laid a crimson skin on the facial nerves;
Bragging pebbles close to the breast.
Fear lurks on her dismantled identity;
Brushing holes on her sloppy knuckles.
Old age knocks like chills beneath the grave;
Longing to churn me in pairs
Death appears as a snobbish ghost;
Propelling a carriage full of swollen moths.
