& I bleed cerulean from the vein
                       It’s true
Royal purple/ indigo too
Since my flesh rarely sees
                      the sun,
               but    flourishes under a black moon
And it’s sick, and I’m sick
                    [Just a genetically engineered tool]

This pale lily shimmer is finely ground
                      & I know if I was ever crowned
                             I’d be an undead Queen
                 not unlike Persephone
                       A mock Diana
                               [For her Empathy]
                     A deranged Hera
         for her jealousy…

And Zeus
        livor mortis blue
           would’ve never made a fucking sound
