Hate Dream

scorpionI wake, I wake
I wake. I sharpen
my stinger sharp as
a needle. I drink
some venom in
a shiny cup.
I sharpen my claws.
I brush my many
Teeth. I shake
my legs.
I am a scorpion.
I am a Hate Dream.

Bumble Bee

beesunflowerYou remind me of the pollen.
You camouflage with
the petals of a sunflower.

Each one of your lines
under a magnifying lens make
me wanna

be a person like you
