God Can Take a Joke


There was the full of you
all pronated jaw and pointy nose
a jagged smile i thought was glory
large eyes and curious stare

In retrospect, not sure why
I mistook you for perfection

Goblins and ghosties and long-legged beasties
and girls that go
in the night.

My mama warned me ’boutcha.
