Ciel Sainte-Marie


gifts of my sweet body

if I took this pill
would my head still fill
with dreams of the
singing stars?
if my brain conformed
would I lose tooth and horn
to guide me through
dimensions beyond?
if I lost this leg
would I have to beg
to feel the tremors
of the earth again?
did nature say
we can't delay
for diversity
and change?
or was it a human oath
uncaring of what i broke
that turns gifts of
my sweet body so strange?
