Once upon a time by S. Dignum

By S. Dignum

Once upon a time,

There lived a girl.

 

A girl whose fire burned,

Invisible to the world.

 

It raged, blazed,

But no one heard.

She cried, hide,

Soared like a bird.

 

In the end The Prince didn’t save her.

 

Altered state poem:

School is the sound of rolling chrome-book carts,

And squeaky sneakers.

School is the sound of scraping chairs,

And the rustling of paper.

 

The stomp of snow-flecked boots,

And the clattering clicks of closing classroom doors.

The consistent clap of heels on tile

And the hushed voices of students.
