Glittered Gaze

her
eyelids flicker flutter
open gutter
only glitter

her
universe a miniature
cascade flickers
sparkled pictures

her
crumbled quivers
warm wind captures
speckled splatters

cognition lapses

The world is not your oyster

The world is not your oyster
its flesh wasn’t made for you
to greedily slide into your mouth
and mindlessly consume

that girl is not your chattel
her form wasn’t made for you
to thrust yourself inside her skin
and violently abuse

those folk are not your servants
their homes were not made for you
to conquer with cold laws and guns
and silence their world views

that land is not your birthright
those woods were not made for you
to plunder with your steel machines
and utterly denude

the world is not your oyster
to mindlessly consume
in your castle built on bodies
of those fallen under you

the world is not your oyster
and as your fragile ego quakes
and the ocean drowns our people
we all pay for your mistakes

Our Kitten

Tiny innocent a
white cotton ball with
blue marble eyes

laboured breathing stinks
of rotting organs and
shit

because

our kitten has no anus it
is genetic misfortune and
her life will be so small so

painful and

revolting and

we named her Dandelion
