Glass Cannon

Glass Cannon photo

Lil lamb
you are so curious 
you should have remained    oiled and innocent
ashed brow on a bed of golden daisies

I told you to stay right there and not move

shrinkwrapped in fairy tale

now your eyelashes 
fall out   one by one
and the vegetables
 in the garden 

she’s all over you like

decades old smoke 
inside wallpaper 


where’s my guillotine at

I’m fat on hate again.
