i
it’s not like they said it would be easy.

when you look at me
open-mouthed and dewey-eyed,
negligent; and your laughter
slurs together like runoff sewage,
and your voice is drowning in
a certain kind of sadness, the one
reserved for the faults
we never asked for; and you sigh,
heavy, like I am back sitting in
your throat between your adam’s apple
and the truths you dare not speak;

you pity me.

ii
it’s that very same weakness which
delivered me naked and trembling
into the skin of a person
I never was; pity

does not require action, disappointment
does not take away from the burning human need
to overcome oneself. I’m sick of living
tomorrow regretting the person I am today;
I drained her all out in a fit of desperation,
and filled myself through with vodka giggles
and scribbled lines and you, darling, you,

who fears nothing but the skeleton girl
sleeping quietly in your closet.
hello, personal

i have a book sitting on my floor, "Transformation Soup"
