The Acceptance

The Acceptance

hibiscus leaves ruffle the back of my tongue
gunpowder swathed gums just shy of
becoming a charcoal chameleon myself
I see a rose fall from a shimmering grey sky

for days the bandits ravaged the countryside
like an enormous centaur trampling a child
beaten into tenderized submissiveness

built a human cage around the last frontier
told us to abide by the body heat of the desert
so we did
