Pain

Agave

Poisonous sap

Sharp leaf spines

Piercing my tender skin

Tortuous.

    on, but
    before you do
    thanks for spreading the
    word

    elfje,
    o the
    effortless fun, loved
    yours, albeit torturous pain
    explained.

    torturous,
    how we
    treat other life.
    thinking, only of ourselves
    shame

    casting
    no aspersions,
    each step we
    take, unseen life we
    kill
