Us, Obsolete.

Us, Obsolete. prose poem

If my face was 4.95 inches,
and in each of these inches,
instead of blemishes and pores,
were five-thirty-eight pixels,
would you look at me?

if my voice was polyphonic,
and instead of whispering,
interrupted
meetings, funerals, and family picnics,
would you listen to me?

if my body was an alloy,
and my hair,
and my curves,
and my scars,
and the dead skin flakes
were all replaced
by a bio-metric fingerprint scanner,
would you touch me?

if my rib-cage concealed four cores
instead of one;
and instead of life,
pumped code,
would you be in awe of me?

and, if my tongue,
emitted Wi-Fi
instead of poetry,
would we connect?

will it take a logo,
etched on the back of my neck,
for
you
to
love
me?

why can’t my goose bumps suffice?

why can’t I suffice

Puberty: Why Do You Give Us So Much Trouble? short poem

Puberty A time of confusion It feels like a delusion With no coordination No organisation Puberty A time to love and hate You grow at an alarming rate Many need someone to help motivate Others are a little bit late
