haiku

I fight my battles

with armor of pure Golden

Oreos. Foolproof.

As the worm spreads, each

device—every viral bit—

blasts: YOU. ARE. ENOUGH.

Menacing Mount Should

obscures the sacred blooms of

the Garden of Is.

Familiar. Presumed

to constrict. Must hide, play small.

Soul shrinks. Heart gets squished.

Shortcomings and shame

sharing every shimm’ring phrase.

Shadow serenade.

There was a camera.

Wasn’t there always?  How else

To enshrine her faults?
