It wasn’t fear; it was shame.

If he were to tell you himself, he has never experienced fear. And if he were to tell you why, he would say that he has never known the feeling, the emotion, the plague. But what he would not be so willing to share would be the impetus behind his lack of fear, his lack of normal human experience, and the obvious answer is simply that he is not human. No educated reader, however, would take this as a good explanation or effective explanation. To which he would coolly reply, “So what.”

‘Green Queen’

IMG_20170703_130108

 

Black on black on black on green,

green like the green of an envious queen

who wears the crown as she drowns in self-loathing

and dares to frown in a gown contrived to belie the power posing.

Pull back the curtain on necessitated self-esteem

or be certain in a sending to the guillotine.

Plebs plead, fleece and pilfer just to get a glimpse of the debs

as they wince at life’s boring routine; it’s obscene,

a lame attack.

Green on green on green on black,

black like the black of a necrotic claque.
