Curious Curse


Ambition cursed-
Despite luxurious accommodations &
A scratch pad soaked in Clorox
To sanitize whatever ails
A faltering stain. For as the stain bleeds
Jutting crosswise
Descending corners to puddle as potential
On the ceramic,
A ventriloquist collects the material &
Organizes it on their palette,
Decorating their Dummy
With a whimper.

We’ve never spoken about censorship
As if it required style. We’ve never considered
The implications
Of what could’ve been. It never asks
To be removed,
Subjective love
From intruders.

It’s better to leave it there
As a stark remembrance
About the beauty
Of cataracts.
