Joy -poem

You came irreverently, unannounced,

asking me who the fuck I am,

and I digged it so much

that I made you mine stealthily,

but simply,

as an egg is broken,

as the stars shine,

though they’ve burned out.

You came in an amiable rage,

swaying your unspeakable charm,

massacring pitilessly

your whole way towards me;

a trail of mutilated bodies

of entrenched or retreating cowards,

and not a beat less to your heart.

You came and nested

on a second in my heart,

but then you soared up

to pluck out the eyes

of inattentive rivals

just to come back, gleefully

to your well-earned nest;

you did that as simply

as breaking an egg

or lighting up a star.
