New Poetry by Michele Seminara


Degrade degrade degrade yourself 
take care to curl up small. 
Have I grown 
compact enough? 
Unfurl me at your peril. 

In the lengthening autumn 
of my shadow skirl reams of discontent—
Am I sitting meekly?
No? Forbid me speak!

Deface deface deface yourself
until you disappear. 
Leave no glyphs to sign this space 
(she wasn't even here).

- Michele Seminara 2016
