For Melissa, whose name means “the sweetest untouchable thing”

I stand before you today
to declare, good people
That I am back on my bullshit.
I am Cassini devoured by Jupiter's incandescent glow.

I'm that one fly who really wants to be
trapped in dark amber for a thousand years.

God but I hate
catching feelings
