melissa muses (or maia, you choose)

who is this woman in the mirror
with age around her eyes
her string of pearls broken
on the floor beneath her feet
feet planted to the earth
what would nietzsche say?
that the face tells the truth?
whispering god is dead

can't you too see he is dead
scattered like my pearls?
take your faith and habit
i'll have my spirit and age
and my broken pearls
to dance upon.
