two poems today; i was too excited about this one not to post it

hull house

January 13, 2021



will you hold me like hull house, for all my grime and dirt
keep me warm and soothe my wounds while i bathe?
a sweeter land could never greet me        would you know
how much it hurt to leave a child’s mind     in truth my bones 
refuse to heal         forget life before the move.

would you study me as the sisters did
am i a case study for a savior         is this worth
my time am i worth        long nights needled fingers
tired sighs back to hull house        this is life.

research for the not-well-known, fallen stars who took me in
memorialize these scars on my wrists
tell my babies they were kisses    from hasty lips quickly bitten
a sunken ship brought me, second chance of a soul
to hull house        pierced but not yet too old.
inspired by my us history homework reading.
