Savage Grace

i’ve scrolled through  
my images a number of times
my finger brushing down the
length of my face
a brief pause at my nose
i loved my nose
no, really...bear with me
........................please, just listen
i really fucking loved my nose
vanity is raising the stakes  
within a vessel that
never honored the beauty  
that i am told i exude
i am not one of those
birds that strolls around  
enticing others  
with their brilliance of color
and physical maneuvers  
i remain unseen
a ghost of who i was
seeking redemption  
through the pain
struggling with the loss
“can’t they remake it”
bitch, i don’t give a flying fuck
i want my nose back
i want my image back
i want my life back
you can’t “remake” that
the audacity of others
the complete and asinine
lack of compassion  
is dumbfounding  
three weeks ago
my life changed
but i will survive
i am moving forward  
i will get through this
i will not  
..................................bow down
two peas in a pod
of rotten humanity  
even the aphids  
won’t digest your bullshit
“you” your love for your dog, despite my flesh
“you” your busy life, despite my flesh  
my best friends, in wolves clothing
my list of friends  
has been scaled down
no longer invited
removed without warning  
much like my nose was
it is with savage grace
that i tear down your walls
sound the alarms
disrupt your perfect world
my delicate being
pushed to it’s limit
delivering punishment  
through every means
while seeing red
