Born This Way

Super Awesome Bonus Poem 1001!

I realized after posting We Are Young that I also never posted 2011's #1 birthday song poem. So here it is.


Born This Way 5/4

I was born
and the sky opened – a dog bearing its teeth
 
No matter black,
 
the expanse was crystal – shuddering – spasms
the womb was lined in glitter
 
I was born –
 
The angles of the room were swept of shadows
as at mid-day – the sun took its hands down
No matter black remained
 
The expanses of the seas calmed – were mirror
 
The gulls desired no food
 
I was born
and the sky broke into multitudes of color – spectrums
you have never heard – ultra
no matter black
 
The arms of the universe wrap about
and flutter at the breath in the lungs of this one
 
I was born
 
No matter black
