​daphne said no

March 31, 2017

the rust ripens on the rinds,
flaking silver atop the fruit.
 
            i peel it away / push, and pull
let exhales electrocute.
 
daphne said no / nuanced, soft
& the gods laughed, lisping gold.
 
            boy hears yes and buoys his hands
on oxidized hips of old.
 
gavels glazed, gloved in bronze
silence festering in the stand.
 
            apollo acquitted / he took & took
until i was no man’s land.
