i know it looks like a pirate's shirt -- but...

an extra ornate
frilly ivory blouse adorned 
cuffs that scream!
candy sharks 

      "i was meant
             to be a poet!" 

yet am humbled
by such a precious
gift -- one would
at times consider
to be a curse 

can you imagine
being so sensitive
that every
single
emotion radiates
all over your body 

similar
to that of a hyper-colour
shirt that changes
hue -- with the breath 
of each piece
of residual 
poetry

that i'm prepared
to freely purge 
from my broken
essence
