Poison

outmoded coexistence
makes room for gospel
centurion idols
abandon posts
turn hostile

sun-scratched plains
preemptive offal
plastic prefecture
consumed by the models

ours is the sun
melts hemispheres
burns holes
invisible
preens
disfigures
corrodes

recycles dreams
with ease of augur
endorphins sing
to cadence offered

slaughtered
en masse
deserves to be landfill
our mother is burning
remains at a standstill

of·fal- noun

  1. the entrails and internal organs of an animal used as food:”eating pieces of braised offal turned his stomach”

Mother’s day poem

verdant bloom
weeping, i
could choke back tears
until they’re dry

palm on cheek
embracing, i
missed you so much
but that’s alright

this 
is the last time 
my future 
can’t be mine

coddled 
to be cozened
when you’re broken
so am i

i’m over
not an ocean
you’re the last star
in the sky

when you’re gone
it’s forever
you’ll miss me 
so do i

coz·en/ˈkəz(ə)n verb
trick or deceive.”do not think to cozen your contemporaries”
