tomorrow
they steal
my snarl

pry open
my last defence
and hack
crack
smack
away

chip back
at bone
with their
chainsaws
like dwarves
spelunking
in Snow White’s
horror to
scrape out the
vestiges
of lies
that served
me well

replacing
my gnash
with a
synthetic
antithesis
of a smile
so i can
at last
take a bite
of the
poisoned
apple

    >one of the most interesting things about the type of artist you are is that everything's an inspiration. when i was young i thought that that's how all artists were, before i went to high school and began encountering "art snobs."true creativity, such as yours, is a matter of empathy. you look at a situation and you think about it in ways that spark other ideas. you let those other ideas grow into tentacles that others can latch on to.
