A Profile of Body Written

I write to you, dear audience

Of all I see, and more

Of all my turbulence of thought

Of ones I once adored


I mark a new-turned leaf

Flaunting shameful erudition

Spin tales when sadness comes

Vent my cliché young sedition


I pen lines on my palm in ink

Of storms personified

With hints of breaking past my wall

And plotting points of sky


I string words like constellation

Of heaviness, undone

Tell my every truth encrypted

Daydream who I may become
