Rouge

at right angles to beauty,

geometry's not my friend,

full reservoirs of make-up

my proportions won't mend

lobster nose, carrot hair,

mirrors crack at my face

Less Than Human

 

Crash landed on this barren planet

Twenty seven forty three

Co-pilot killed on impact

And eaten eventually

There’s no food in the food hold

Incinerated by the heat

I’m trapped here in the cockpit

With the bones of Corporal Lee

 

Got out through the meteor shield

By use of a sharpened shin

the green light burned my phantom portals 
shut while she who would be next, maybe 
to join that banished host,
waited and wept in her forlorn 
unkempt fearfulness
