Helvetica. 

You are a Helvetica 

With the blood of Times New Roman 

Neutral face with a sharp tongue 

Licking wounds under paper skin 

Dog-eared and coffee stained 

Femininity lost in 

Subtle serifs 

Laced between contradictions and clarity 

Seeking softness only in meanings 

Two faced and shameless

No longer hiding

Just brutally honest 

Typewritten in ink for permanence 

For remembrance 

Afraid of commitment in a book that rewrites 

History in fonts ever-changing 

Burning bridges and striking words off 

Smudging lines by typing over them 

Again and again 

Move on 

The world is starting on a fresh page 

Refresh
You were a Helvetica 

With the blood of Times New Roman 

(Where’s your tribe? Who are you?) 

Reduced to words on burning paper 

Ashes scattered at sea 

Sunk and swallowed
