she mouths Rilke
the way angels
speak to god
perspires the culture
and inspiration
writers die for
and knows

Once upon a time I was a butterfly. Free and small,
frail and innocent. Flying away in games of tag.
but that was when i was free.
"you are so pretty," people tell me and
"thank you" i say, even though my mind is saying
no. yes. no. no.
    And now i know
You are only pretty when you are free and weak and innocent.
or when you are dead.
my mother reads diaries. my father is never home.
  you are a burden, administration. There is
a storm brewing, and your academics can't
stop it. keep us together. and stop teaching
once i almost drowned. people will say
it is enlightening. but it was just
Will you take my hand and lead me to
the ocean? Out where we can see
the reflections of the stars on the water
because reflections lie. im sure those
fucking balls of gas believe theyre
beautiful, too.
(they are, though, and im jealous.)
your story is a pretty thing, i
take your hand and say
"stop talking."
i am childish, because i think
