Disney: Rewrite III

Snow White the Scientist

Skin white like sodium chloride-

she will analyse you to dust,

till the sucking sound

of a coffin’s lid shut

has faded. She came out of the glass

she wanted to know how it worked.

The citric acid of an apple

still in her mouth,

swallowing aspirin;

the glorious chemical burst.

 

She’s been blocking thoughts for years

and now with the delicate nose of a syringe,

they drip, painfully slow, to

a test tube’s questing sides.
