just as lost as I was,
reached out with
a perfectly manicured hand.
queen captain of the new Titanic,
weathering a storm you
could never know

with more beauty and soul than

(or would deserve).

digesting it whole and
letting it fester in their rotten guts

and on we will go.
she does not need to prove anything
to you, but look how she
glimmers in the light as
even when you try to cast your shadow.
