a little venom in your birthday cake.

the ease of your wickedness
shone down like a summer sun
through thick green branches
and bubbled my skin just the same.

I must have been a horrible person
to deserve this, surely.

aloe vera and a little love
will heal my tender scorches–
but where will you go
for such a vile soul?

straight to Hell–
and I hope the devil is your doctor.
