Past Time: Her Haiku

Fuck this very zoo
Where captivity drives you
To regret your eyes

*****************

Consecrated Girl
Born for a time such as this
You have been called up

*****************

Equal in this pen
Harken back now to the days
‘fore you suffered snakes

“[F]or if you remain silent at this time…you and your family will perish…who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?”
– Esther 4:14

Not Humored

A gorilla behind the wheel

Surely you see the humor

And he’s brilliant, after all

If you’re outside looking in….

…but inside….

Gripping at anything stationary

Having stopped laughing miles and miles ago

You rethink genius, throw a banana in the backseat

And resume your route to the zoo
