Unseen

Aurora Phoenix

Insights from "Inside"

do you not see her?

the cowering fawn

peering cautious and doe eyed

behind flippant bang flips

biting back her fears

with her insolent lip.

she watches you

ancient soul

reading your exigencies

with survivor fluency

belied by halting

rhetorical cadence

do you not know her?

the ravenous infant

who suckles greedily

at the toxic teat

of counterfeit conceit

bloating on the surfeit

distended lies and

dismembered truth.

she masters you

the precocious conjurer

who spins chimerical yarns

as Van Gogh paints Poe

renders you heroine

victim of self-inflicted villainy

sutures your hara-kiri wounds

 

do you not hear her?

the rhythmic rocking

to her heartsick keening

the illegible lamentation

scrawled in bloodied

chicken scratch

writ literary boldface

in every listless shrug

and hangdog

‘I don’t care’

she echoes you

parroting perverse

perseverations

preening for the

mirror, mirror

who’s the mommy dearest

hanging malignant mercury

poisoning her future
