in ashes I subside.

stalk,
the shaking rain
of white lies split in my head
whored forgotten to snakes;

in footed trees that grow from my chest
crickled in the occasional drunk root,
and a well-stirred death,
in ashes I subside.

Be sure to join in on Ingrid’s poetry party on Twitter. It’s all about writing a micro-poem everyday (any topic, any theme) where a poet, like me, can butcher words together!
