Pop’t

Pop’t
JCD Kerwin

I am not amused.
I’m set on stage
as entertainment,
but
I have no balloons,
no tricks to show,
and my face
is washed away.
You laugh anyway.

Tiffany Blue

Science is ridiculous.

Tiffany Blue
JCD Kerwin

I don’t sparkle,
shine,
or glow
like crafted gems
from caves.
I’m not special,
pristine
or wanted
like diamonds
in your safe.

But I am formed
of iron ore
and will last beyond
every dollar
you throw away.
