Girl Raised On Olive Oil

hooking up
with a girl
raised on
olive oil.
She asked me
if the stones
at her feet
I had cast.

mistake me
for a
civil engineer
of the Roman Army,
I prefer
to remain
I was never proud
of my
conquering heritage.

Who cast
the obsidian
of her pupils?
I am
of them.

Who poured
the water
that sweats
from her feet?

      1. You’re more than welcome and thank you! Knowing that you think my stuff is high quality makes me feel super proud since I love your writing style. I am browsing LOTC right now; thanks again for that since I was looking for a new book to read today. Cheers!

      2. What are you talking about? that was yesterday.
        God, I’m 24 but I already feel ancient.

        Will do, thank you!
