Courtney Leigh: Oracle Says I’m a Triangle

Oracle says i’m a triangle,

traces my body

fingertips pirouetting

on the table before us

 

my wings made up of

two men

skeletons chained

to shackles on wrists

the storm is closing in

i can feel the sun cracking

as above so be

 

the end looks like

three lovers

the end feels like

none

i am not satiated

i am open wounds

on palms

 

Oracle eyes singe

bloody hands to hand

shakes me wildly

lammed in flame

i wake to

 

the lion closing in
