First: she is very young.

She takes your strongest looks and they are digested
& she sits restful and entirely serene among her apples and
perhaps like Sigyn she will stop the poison from entering your eyes
(or perhaps she will absorb it all herself)

She will walk down the cobbled streets and in a light sundress
Because she is lined with toxins and therefore entirely
(something new glints in her eyes as she grows a year older and
you believe that the shadows are what makes her tongue
appear forked).

And all you wanted was an apple.

One time, she said she wanted to bring you out
And you were afraid.
