Poly-Anger Blend

by Nikki Rice

have pluck'd the sparkles
from my eyes
and here they're left, so dull,
like dryer lint.

bitterly knitted,
cover claws;
a poly-anger blend,
itching away.

pretending you're dead;
I'm alive,
preferring me a man,
not a mem'ry.


Author's Note: ...advice for the one who bruised this heart of mine...
