I was never born
to be cookie cutter,
I was always the brownie baker,
foot kisser
turning the oven up to 451 degrees Fahrenheit
with a dagger in one hand and a bar of gold in the other
flicking specks of the metal
into my words and watching the town below
blossom into what we call a generation.
Always birthing phrases and dialects about
understanding and acceptance
but never being understood or accepted myself.
"How can that be?" Schrodinger will ask.
I am unwilling to open Pandora's box,
so I guess we will never know.

Wonderful job! :clap: (And by the way, is '451 degrees Fahrenheit' a reference to Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451? ;))

Thank you so much. :)


and yes actually! You're the first person to point that out, but hopefully not the first to catch the reference. ^_^'

There's been a lot of good stuff written on dA in the last few days. And this is another one. :)

I don't know what's going on with the writers, lately, but something is happening. I hope it lasts a while.

If that's the reason, it won't last long. [sigh]
