dodgeballs

inertia thrusted
the softly padded spheres.
damage absorbed
by bodily impact,
unjust tears.

oracle orbs foretold
thickened bone,
coarse follicles,
rumbling tone.
orders from the father,
seemingly etched in stone.

what follows:
a season of losses.
menstruation frustration,
segregation,
resignation.
maligned being:
abomination.

hopeful vision,
indecision,
and finally,
incision.
revenge exacted,
extracted,
with surgical precision.

seedless grapes
plucked from the vine
shriveled,
atrophied,
withered from grief
and androgenic defeat.

curse the father, the holy ghost,
the damage already done.
the holy trinity reduced
to one.

Left with only a prayer—
an inverted second coming
reborn from material
with no fruit left to bear.
