sculpture nails

i fell in love with vindictiveness
caramel-thick jealousy
poured over my airborne bubble lust

hair like daisies, acrylic sculptures
nails of saffron and perfumed silk shifts

there is no question of longing, of
the meaning
of feeling

more than nothingness or
sublime carnivorous ascension and the cotton
sheets of work not yet hard enough

is blue your favorite color, because
your tears are more wondrous than the sea

sea, oh darling sea, saltwater depths and
coral reefs destroyed by your own
dreadful vulnerability
