Micropoetry (4 Attempts) possibly triggering

1

The apple’s venom curdles

The milk of my sclera

The tragedy of Eden

Survives in proximity

2

You nurse the speculum deeper

Widening the pocket of my shame

Every cell has been categorized

The verdict stands: Abnormal

3

I will be forgotten

I will be forgotten

Please forget me

Forget that I lived

How I died

Forget all that I was

And all that I lacked

4

Every effort I make

Is met with violent effect

Invitation rescinded

Even my prayers

Have teeth

*

Right now I feel like the universe is kicking me repeatedly in the face. #2 is not to be taken literally
