Palindrome

Palindrome
You go both ways
Though never quite to mine
Skin of onyx, heart of pine
And never lacking spine
With cynic’s sneer
And gilded ear
She charms with tireless traction
So woe is me
For tying she, in hopelessness attraction

Map

That crease above her brow
From squinting while she reads
That rougish little smile
When facetiously she pleads
All these curves and bends and alleyways
Her captivating lead
I could map her every detail
To a map I wouldn’t need

Biodegrading

Biodegrading

Oversimplification
Claiming that love is some hormone addiction
A chemical fission
Not alchemic ambition
Turning words into gold
With no worldly condition

Biodegrading

Entrapped in rotation
Like the sun and the moon
And the ocean’s migration
Envious flicker
Green flash of constriction
Binding my heart to this ancient depiction
Of petals collapsing
And pupils relaxing
And rise from the ashes
Degradation relapsing
