Black Islands (for ME)

Her eyes

Are a black,

Black notebook

Filling a five-star five subject

Notebook of the month,

A part of her.


A teenager

Hates her brown eyes

Dirt dark chocolate ice cream.

Her eyes are a blank book.

Blue and light alliterate



The young

Neurobiologist is poet

Learning the mechanism of sight.

Her eyes are a black Macbook.


Her eyes are a book born

Apart from her.
