She woke up noon-stricken,
piled up like trash, growing
eco-systems of rejects
inside her head.

Colony of emotions hatch
larva born buried
in mountains of bones
and disposable diapers.

Face olive like wine
bottles drunk in a haste
to empty translucency.

Memories squeezed neatly
in green plastic bags
like dog poop and icing
on birthday cakes.

Yellow-paged poems wrapped
her in metaphors, a blanket
of gibberish, growing
eco-systems of cliches
inside her head.
