No

and to think
    this vessel
used to eat
    itself
                alive

                      old circuitry
                            can only
                            wonder
                                      echinacea

                     now  it
                     rips
                     tears
          on the inside
to expand

a habit

                            and gravity
        yes
              of course

                            it’s exponential
               mensaje imputente

                       alternative
                                                     truth  serum
        in the trees

                                  another
   ten years
                                              of drought
                  though

                                                                  where
                                                                 are you

verbascum

I can
still
see it
in the
dark

                                  liquid  light
             erosion
                              this
      resistence
                                          submerges

                              when
            will     it
collapse

    I immediately thought you were talking about an auto immune disease and it kinda made sense for a while, but then stopped making sense. Your poetry makes me think.

    I love the flow of your poetry and the way the eyes have to dance in order to read it. I wonder, if this is a typo, do you mean mensaje impotente? Your “u” should be an “o” perhaps?

        Ah, sorry! In Spanish, Mensaje impotente means a message that’s not important or significant. Thank you — now I’ll probably have to look up that song. 🙂
