The Siren Sings

All Things Ordinary

Name:
crashing_lights
Birthdate:
9 November
I don't mean to make you cry.
I mean nothing, but this has not kept you
From peeling away my body, layer by layer,

The tears clouding your eyes as the table fills
With husks, cut flesh, all the debris of pursuit.
Poor deluded human: you seek my heart.

Hunt all you want. Beneath each skin of mine
Lies another skin: I am pure onion--pure union
Of outside and in, surface and secret core.

~ from Monologue for an Onion by Suji Kwock Kim
