Visualizing Success

by Cassandra de Alba

i’m not gonna be the first verse
in the song about how you found yourself.
i’m gonna glitter like dirt
in your knuckles. i’m the wettest
match, the dullest knife.
i’m gonna come charging
from the hills like a flood
that doesn’t care about you.
i’m gonna rattle in your engine.
i’m gonna leave a meaningless mark.
