Meanwhile, back on earth

Meanwhile, back on earth
Pirate girl made another wish to safe the world,
the days stretch their shadow a little longer,
and light diffuses its goal

We are just not into all that malarkey,
Ayden said,
and jumped at the chance
to throw it all away

Here’s to all the saints and sinners
who clearly don’t know
what it is to talk the fine line
in between glee and fury;

to play the good wife,
the daughter, the sister and the soul
and bend so many trait rules,
the pages of the book that knows it all,
curl up in chalkboard agony

And so the story goes
up in wind and down like confetti
blinding a world into thinking it just snows
