Don’t Call Me Maggie

June 6, 2018

Don’t call me Maggie

Call me Margaret or Maleficent

Call me Magnificent.

 

Call me thorns call me vines call me teeth

Don’t call me easy

Don’t call me baby

 

And don’t call me sugar gums and nectarine skull
sweet licorice lulls

Don’t call me after bitterness

 

Don’t call out to me

When your rain streaks my cheeks like violent violet

When your thunder cracks up my spine

 

Don’t call to me in kisses

In whispers

In apologies, no

 

Don’t call don’t- don’t call

And one day

I will not remember

What I used to call you.
