trojan horse

you’ve done it all,
at last,
the dark horse,
a prize horse,
hoarse from telling lies
inventing goodbyes
so i’m no longer human,
a chess piece,
the best piece;
they call it a knight,
but put me to the light
and you will see a horse’s head.

i’d rather be a pawn instead.


imagine what it would be like to be the face that launched a thousand ships…
