Chrysalis in Waiting

your skin
so smooth, unfurrowed
your eyes bovine beautiful
matt glazed with infantile expectation
your mouth slightly parted ready
for a congratulatory kiss for just being
your head always angled slightly up
as if your sustenance came from air
you live in a cocoon
weaved for you by
your guardian angel
a calf coddled
and fatted for sacrifice
at the alter of time.
