sagittarius

I am Sagittarius, four legs one head, 

a woman abhorring all the people she misled


pretending what she says, means anything important

a boring recollection of the dreams that all went dormant


not by any means her fault, it never is

it’s easy to pretend, it takes guts to live


loud— obnoxious, she cannot be tamed

all the men she’s loved were always entertained


by all of her afflictions, her love and her demeanor

too bad they never knew exactly how to keep her


this is all to say that I practice what I preach

unless I’m under siege, unless I am beseeched


a funeral for enemies explains how I release

I never understood how anyone agrees


to let anyone grab, hold of what is sacred

I’m not concerned on how I’m viewed or even if I’m hated


I realize I’m here, temporarily, 

I know the unholy, of my rarity
