II. mercury

winged shoes and metallic painted eyelids
she is a sight to see, her tongue as silver as
her soul, quick and intellectual, she'll leave
your jaw on the floor in a battle of the wits
to walk with her is to feel the cool of metal
and see a sly smile smeared across her face
she knows her value, and she is unashamed
to show it, the pristine shine of stainless
steel can be blinding, but doesn't veil the
image of a powerful ally, intimidation is key

    Wow, the way you describe this person is so eerie and majestic (is that the right word?) It feels like you're describing some Greek myth or something!

    re: yep, I did! Well, do lol, and probably will again next year. Yeah, it's a kind of conspiracy theorist who believes (obvi) the earth is flat. And this one believes a whole slew of other things too, so it's just fun to write lil haikus about it. Seems too weird to be real sometimes tbh and until like December I wondered if it were all an act :)

    You have no idea how much self-restraint it took to not paste the entire freaking piece into the comments when picking a favorite line. I'll have to settle for choosing this beauty:
    "her tongue as silver as
    her soul"
