green

the green monster is in me
when you utter the syllables
articulating her name
the green monster is in me
when you cup her face
did you forget?

she is moss
her life is your tears
and decay. she hugs tight
you’re a relic in her eyes
to be overcome, and eventually
- suffocated

green is the color she’ll become
when the poison takes hold
green is the color she’ll taste
on your lips, absinthe
kiss laced
with my bitterness.
