genesis

I have birthed you,

I have birthed you, I have drawn you

I have birthed you, I have drawn you so well,

I have birthed you, I have drawn you so well, each line is a matchstick.

Each line

Each line deserves its own poem.

Each line deserves its own poem. I fiddled

Each line deserves its own poem. I fiddled under the balcony

Each line deserves its own poem. I fiddled under the balcony and played god.

Perhaps two days ago,

Perhaps two days ago, I'd have left

Perhaps two days ago, I'd have left your cheeks milky,

Perhaps two days ago, I'd have left your cheeks milky, unburied

Perhaps two days ago, I'd have left your cheeks milky, unburied the ticking chest grenade,

Perhaps two days ago, I'd have left your cheeks milky, unburied the ticking chest grenade, polished

Perhaps two days ago, I'd have left your cheeks milky, unburied the ticking chest grenade, polished it out of its own skin.

Climbed up a stairwell,

Climbed up a stairwell, dangling.

Climbed up a stairwell, dangling. Playing god.

Only now,

Only now, there's a quietness about you.

Only now, there's a quietness about you. Your chin just skims above the marble.

I promise,

I promise, out there,

I promise, out there, all of it

I promise, out there, all of it—green.
