hull house

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.
