the devil’s daughter

A step forward will place me
  three steps shy of three steps
                backward
    so much so
              it seems forward
    but never quite

   GOD I INFURIATE MYSELF
      I find so often I enjoy humanity
        & all the little features

             but I look in a full length mirror
      I yearn for this reflection
                 [being your other half
     like a smoky portrait I haven’t yet taken]

              hands folded alone

in burning black gardens
      @ night
