"CONFETTI"

The cynic, the romantic, the fool,
and the feminist. I have been them all,

and I have been them well. But
I am happier when I am not

thinking which words best describe
me, for I am more than adjectives. I am

story. I am this tender-hearted drive
to turn the world inside out, this

delicate force that sometimes hugs
itself so tightly, the fears seem to break

apart, and all my thoughts are moons
orbiting a planet of plot twists that

unfurl and intersect. Look how many
subplots there are and notice how

the exposition keeps changing fonts
as though hoping to scatter like confetti.

***From My Gothic Romance, my first full-length collection of poetry (published April 2019 by Finishing Line Press)
