You Made The World

You Made The World

originally published in Feminine Collective


Agony—a gone knee

Can’t bend—no way to mend

This isn’t about aging—maybe about raging

What stops the crazy rhyme-time?

Unplug the clock

Blind its ruby face

Tear your eyes out if you must

Choke on dust

There I go again, too easy

This lilting rhythm and sound

Trapped by the jazzy sing-song of

My ragged synapse

I didn’t make the world, you did

I wanted to fit in, then to be let out

Like a pair of pants that no longer suits

Okay, I’ll stop

But you see where I’m going and what I mean

All this noise in my head, your fault

You made the world in which I briefly twirled



I’ll go on making nonsense from the scantest sense

I rewrite the rules

Trade in the jewels you gave me or promised to

I get to speak in my own way, in my own way

You want to right me?

Bite me
