"Her Property"

Her Property

This tenement of lies
defeats the skies

to a squalor
unbecoming her.

She rummages
for goods that damage.

In the sick of unsleep,
the roof sags and weeps.

How how how 
fate kisses her brow,

arcs her to a rainbow.    
Gold streaks of hair show

glimmers of a treasure
sequestered in her nature.

If she knows she counts,
this will amount

to enough for supplying
the cost of living.
