Day 444: trophy case

on the good days
i feel trophy like
gold like
sterling like
platinum sometimes
i hang on walls
performed perfection
i've got my movements practiced
i feel like the picture you leave on your desk long after its over
a scar
something left behind
and tangible

on the good days i feel like a catch
like something to be won
and worn with pride

today i want to feel human
with skin
heart beat
beastly love like
we are full
like everything still works
but instead i feel like im hung on your wall
watching the spaces change
the seasons leave
like falling autumns leaves
we are changing it seems
but i am still a trophy
the kind that stay there
leave dust marks
felt when
