Mountain


The scraps

Fall from

Your mouth and I

Mound them

Into my

Little mountain,

Conquer

The peak

Of all

You’ve

Discarded.                          -e.c.

Evolution

IMG_3822

Here’s your
March
Of time
And Evolutionary
Progression
But burning
Your offspring
And tasting
The sharp note
Of blood
When nobody
Loves you
Is like a sweet
Reminder
That your
Death
Is the only
Real truth
You know. 

– e.c.

Energy

An

incredible amount

of energy

is spent

forgetting

all that’s left

to remember.

-e.c.

Spoon

I’m
Just
Afraid
My brain
Will
Eat
And rot
Me hollow
So I spoon
It clean
To watch
You glean
All the other
Wings
In me
I never
Gave
Room
To
Grow.  -e.c.

Super Girl

Super girl, girl, daughter
SUPER GIRL

She flew

Into all forms,

A pecking order

That started with

My

Mother’s coiled heart

And ended in her unraveled

One.

And all my time has been

Spent braiding

And knotting

What’s come

Loose

And only

When I look down

Do I realize

The world has

Removed

My fingers. -e.c.
