i feel so little these days

FREE WRITING

   
     i am sitting here
the remnants of raisins 
and yesterday's apple core
knotting sourness in my stomach
    when my eyes close
i breathe in mom's radish soup
and i used to feel a heart there
i used to feel everywhere 
    but these days the only thing

a ghost's company

FREE WRITING


i only walk because mom sewed me two working legs so i must
not make her cry. in the corner some ghost is never looking when
i turn my head but i am goose-bumped and sweaty and i swear i
swear one hand on god one hand on my heart i swear i'm no liar.

about splinters and hardened caramel and the way some fool made
me feel...

what you touch is what i am worth

FREE WRITING


my odd arrhythmia is a symptom 
of mom's weak blood
and the dream you chose 
to have before i was born.
i was traded for 28 scraggly veins
and believe me when i say
i understand that i am
