I should probably post an introduction to pin on my profile but at this point I'm just like "pls support your local magpie poet, she likes ramen and eggs and shiny things and will give you words in return."

Also

"Eater of hearts currently rebuilding her empire of mugs in a non disclosed location that is no longer London."

Or maybe just.

"Tired poet does words for you whether you like them or not. Is soft please don't startle."

Yeah that'll do.

I'm a black cat, I'm a broken mirror.
I'm a crow at your window.

I have eaten
the tower
that was in
the city

and where
hundreds of people
lived
in peace

Forgive me
It was delicious
so crunchy
and so cold

Don't take my reflections for truth, they are overlayed by hurt and rejection. It doesn't make them not true, it just makes them incomplete.

how mundane, for everything to break and then piece itself together

Leaves rustle to the melody of Bella Ciao
in a low note and I note their discontent
through a failed revolution they fall bloody
to the ground. I rise up
I rise up against the sun’s force and all
who reach for me in that time
are spurned.

2/2

Nettle heart.

Bright sunflower girls abuzz with their careless hands,
sting the passersby and leaves without so much
as a by your leave. I watch them,
I was them. A while, another summer.
I grow thick with want for this summer to end,
the delicate stems of me wish to wither and curl.

1/2

Leaving, leaving - left.
2nd poem of September is up on Patreon. You know those messages you start to write to an ex, or a lost friend, and you never send? It's like that, but to London.

First poem of September:

The People I Say 'I Love You' To

patreon.com/posts/29765893

We are young gods, furious and
ecstatic. No one loves us like we do.

I have a new profile picture, it's still me, promise.

Pisces:

All that is lost is forever owned
by in the house of memory,
alone they await the moment
where even there they are
out of reach.
Take care
not to find yourself within it.

Aquarius:

Aren’t you tired?
Do you imagine Sisyphus laughing?
do you wish to be mythical
in your love, so painted in virtue
and martyred on another’s
spiny thorns?
Or do you wish to lay down your arms
for just a bit?

Capricorn:

Do not be gentle with yourself
if your lips are turning to stone
by the break of winter.
Work yourself like a sculpture,
there are words lost here
to be found again.

Sagittarius:

Two cups will rest on your bedside table,
one for you.
The stars aim to fill the second cup
with everything you deserve;
be vary of what you deserve.

Scorpio:

You’ll meet a tall, dark, stranger.
So dark, the heart will seem to
encompass the whole of you,
and when you leap into it
eternity stretches from your fingertips.
And they will be a stranger to you
once more.

Libra:

Rootless like a rose plucked for it’s beauty,
you find cruelty in the pasts embrace.
You need not be a rose,
a thorn by any other name would sting
as hard
and ruthless.
