Ovarian Caskets

Fecund and fabulous
you tower glorious
over hydrogenated debris
lining poor ovarian caskets
little more than fecal containers.
'Waste not, want not'
the proverb screams
at me through discarded
plastic bag teeth,
Nature's rectal thermometer,
a tall tail-end
of plebian diarrheal demise.
