My poem “Lab: Medusa’s Head” is in Issue 6 of Trampoline Poetry.

I want to write a poem to the lackluster scales

dusting her cheeks. But someone else

did that 10 years ago and I feel so old,

Older than stone.

The teacher says cut.

The teacher says peel.

The teacher says uncover the eyes last.
