You’ve never had stars in your eyes
only leaves.
I remember when they were green
like me (and she and she and she).
Both of us were, werent we?
Green, like serpentine.

Like blind men handing out tickets for Christ
your oak face let go of those poison ivy eyes.

I’ve never been lacking skintone
only backbone.
I remember when I was albino
red-eyed rosetones (I drone I drone I drone).
what’s the negative of red, after pictures start developing?
green, like serpentine.

not done.
