the exotic ripening of the finer sex

seeding from within

for the birthing of yourself

this time –

You will

burst through your own damned skin,

exploding the social shell

into a mess of flowering  pulp;



take shape into flight.

You strange and wonder full fruit –

filling the air with your juice,

for the hungry

who can only long

with painful bellies

unsure if they actually saw you

take your wings

into the sky –

Are you

never to land

on mundane, again?

Joy calls from you now

as your span stirs the air.

You circle up –

you orbit out –

a spiral map for the

gaping below.
