Poem #93

She wanted so bad to be edgy,

To square her rounded mould:

Adidas for Joules, vaping for baking,”

Was a mantra she to herself told.

Each day in her cap a new feather

(She donned a fresh peak from Ellesse):

MD, EDM, and avid Corbynism

Were the limes from which she squeezed zest.

But one balmy afternoon whilst reading–

That Postmodern bulwark, Infinite Jest

Her eyelids drooped, her head soon followed,

Until her chin found respite on her breast.

She awoke– oh horror!– to a shapely

Metamorphosis, a most peculiar bodily lesion!

Where once limbs and curves, now

Twelve vertices: enough for a dodecahedron.
