Call her by the name of greek goddesses

She once painted the letters:

APHRODITE

Across her toenails

What about the last toe?, I asked

Someone responded

“she would polish it so she could mirror

 the smile of the owl”

what a group I thought as I combed my

hair back with their satin words

 

I love just wasting away here

In the split gold jewel explosions of poverty
