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

YOUR LOVE

Wounded beyond despair
Lost at the edge of self
Your love a broken whisper
Brushing my scarred soul
Like forgotten bones
My heart rattled for life
Seeking emergence from reapers grip
Too weak to challenge defeat
You lifted my soul to hope
~~Thy Wife, A. G. Muilenburg
