Violet

 

Upside down geometry

startles me. Your supple

isosceles, your pristine

spine studded with ribs.

I envy your symmetry.

I feel scalene, blue lipped

and barren of miracles.

Inside you, Violet

with soft strength a seed

will grow and bend your angles

until they bloom and sweet

girl, it will ruin you.
