FREE WRITING

2
a heavy book crammed with words
that i've written
that i've silently whispered
my mouth caressing the humid air of my bedroom

a bracelet woven by a woman
who has known the art for generations
who has felt blisters upon her back
who has felt like the last of her kind,
when really she is the only of her kind

the applause of strangers who have stumbled
and launched themselves into the depths of my mind
unaccustomed to the jarred edges and caffeine fulled thoughts
which whiz by like bees who have been revived from the dead

self-respect and pride and the urge to be immortal
i would like to believe in something other than the potential for dystopia
this is a dystopia, my dear reader

one does not receive their wishes
until they are dead and dreaming.
