Vision

Bravely and butt nekkid from the balcony of their airBandB she shouted, “I am a sensual woman!!”

Her king laughed as he watched in admiration from his perch on their borrowed bamboo bed.

His queen turned to him and they shared a smile as she Bankhead bounced in slow-mo.

Writer’s note: Yes. Nekkid.


where’s my lighter?

 

The queen burned down her own kingdom 

Overrun with foolishness

She was homeless/hoeless 

Far from hopeless though

She laughed slightly and smiled 

The queen burned down her own kingdom

 She stood just close enough to feel the warmth of the flickering flames and not get burnt

Bending down, she lit her cigarette on the walls of her burning kingdom 

Unafraid of cancer, because we’re all terminal anyway, she inhaled and exhaled 

Fuck it

Let it burn

Let it burn

Let it burn 

She owned that it wasn’t built on anything worth saving 

Foundation fractaled by faux “I’ll love you forevers” flung from mouths that made mockeries of marriage 

Unions made useless 

Committed only to not being committed 

Lessons learned

Bridges burned 

The queen burned down her own kingdom

Let it Burn
