FOREIGNER

Crushing otherness today

Detached from my own skin

Only breathing reminds me

Displaced am I in this world

Castaway, renegade, exile

Standing outside of fleshy throngs

Misunderstood and misunderstanding

Craving human absorption

Desirous of the fool’s banality

Embargoed on intimacy, acceptance, love

For those sensations are for the accepted

The elect, the citizen…. the enthralled

~~Feral Goddess, A. Green-Muilenburg

DARK VOYAGE

Extinction claims the familiar

As I roam this alien ether

My ark oared with scars

Lightening for a rudder

Sails of darkness billow

With the breath of leviathans

Of my own construct

That seek my inner fringe

No safe harbor will take

This fragile cargo

Yet my oath propels my quest

Of endless hope

~~Feral Goddess, A Green-Muilenburg
