Circulating venom,
Like ripe oranges
Leathered tight
Like wet jeans
Repeating remarks
Swarming predictions
Stories so fake
That they might be true
Faces detailed
With emotions-
The pores are smooth
Blank cheeks
Lips talk longer than their tongues
Prison break.
Of the held within barriers
Explosion of identity
Born infidelity
Sweatshirts hide skin
But bones can’t hide hurt.
