ectopic chimera

pulling me out through my womb
coldness piles itself around
my stony womanhood
scarring life’s channels
closing them off

killing the kernel before it explodes
a warm fertile serpent slowly uncoils
and slides itself from my shivering belly
into the foreign future of tomorrow
a disappearing chimera

This is my piece for Margo Roby’s Tuesday Tryouts. The prompt was to explore something we lost.

    • As soon as my mind lit on this as something lost, I went with it. Thank you for the prompt, and for stopping to leave your imprint here. I’m enjoying your presence out here in the blog world.
