Authoring Angles

Aurora Phoenix/Blood Into Ink

Blood Into Ink

woman writing her story

you should write a book

they tell me

various perusers

of my life’s

recent chapters.

ever at internal skirmish

diffident plaid skirted

schoolgirl

raises head and eyebrows

in self-effacing surprise

shrouding wonderment

beneath a shrug

and a vague maybe someday

while dauntless

badass bitch

square of shoulder

and peg, ill-fitting

of normative round holes

gazes direct

between hard-earned

crows’ feet

barely biting back

damn straight

and everyone

should read it.

belatedly

I consider

each source

evaluate motivation

feel out

hidden angles

compile subtitles

to my unwritten

narrative

not for voyeuristic consumption

I am NOT an object lesson

dare the world

read

with open eyes
