Oil On Paper

Oil On Paper

Oil On Paper

 

It listens
Its words are slick,
Blotchy
“You can be what you desire.”
Oil on paper.

Lifting a high nose
Through half-lidded lashes,
Dusty window blinds.

You look in and
See
It breaks off self-worth
To only those who have stars
to count.

“You can be what you desire,”
Doubt utters
From your lips
But its wicked mouth is that
Of a different language,

“–there is nothing for you here,
In the land of the living.”
