Poet DNA

March 13, 2017


I am a poet girl-
a poem woven from flesh and bone
with a beating paper heart
that's been crinkled one too many times
and I have a compilation of words
pressed into my very spine,
a quote etched into every single vertebrate
and I have ink mixed with blood
fueling these shaking lungs
and my eyes
my eyes have read too much
have seen too much
cried too much,
my brain is tired
it's spewing vowels and consonants
of a language I don't understand yet
and my hands are jittery,
I have too many stories
that fight to be penned down
and I have soul matter
consisting out of ABC's
and too many overlapping forms of punctuation
and I-
I am a girl of poems.
