Anxiety creeps

Anxiety creeps
As worms in petals in bloom;
Anxiety creeps
And spreads and drips
On the floor of the room
Through chinks in scrawlings of gloom.
Anxiety creeps.

Online Profile (Status: Available)

I have bought from the mall
All shapes on sale
And stitched into patterns
Of glamour and gloss
That others might favour
And barter their smile
To fatten for slaughter
The purse of the self,
Clutched in the fist
As morsels to the starved. 

Decked to the hilt, on windows I pose
And showcase myself for consumers' gaze.
