Still pouring

Wrap it in bacon
Serve it with butter and garlic
drizzle maple syrup over it
roast, boil or bake it

It is still a brussel sprout
it is still going to leave a bad taste in your mouth


She dances between reality and tomorrow
hears the screams
in the echoes of silence
Pointing, ridicule and laughter
her heart upon a shelf


Standing in the doorway of life

In darkness there is light

behind her
a step ahead
She stands between

In the stillness she hears
Only to realize it is she, herself
Banging the doors to be set free
