naked

i’ve never felt so naked before
foreign places making me sore
soaring to new places in store

stories dipped in platinum metaphor

met a four year old girl
she said, “you look like a monster,”
apologized,
i saw the flies
fly out from under
my eye lids.
i said, “little girl,
where is your mother?”

she said, “where is your father?”

i never felt so naked before
foreign places making me sore
soaring to new places in store

storming storming storming

saw the sunrise one morning,
more like,
i think i saw jesus.
he said, “you look like a monster.”
i said, “you better believe it.”
felt my gut turn to ashes,
i guess i knew i was demon.
he said, “this isn’t the last bit.”
felt my legs and my feet and
my arms go to sleep and
my head fell too deep and–

i’ve never felt so naked before
foreign places making me sore
soaring to new places in store

burning burning burning
