She looks at me
a pekish woman
hungry to disgrace my surface
My one persona


How shallow people are
when they only see superficial
they see only the craters of the moon
not how it shines


tell me old woman
tell me maiden
tell me something in whispers
what's the meaning of pleasant?


my flaws
feel grateful?
it makes you feel safe
unharmed by the corrosive chatters about your being


I am my skin
though I'm not solely skin
I have veins and roots and words and stars
everyone has


everyone is something inside everything
you think?
you know?
you don't.
