A lesson in lung capacity, in tears streaked like a windshield. How hungry winter was. Broke into apartments,
slept in kitchen sinks, in mouse holes. Kept snow in our back pockets, eyes burnt out like city lights. I took the scenic route each night, broke Corona bottles outside bars with no names, smeared faces. Fingers sticky with lime juice. It was easier, then.
Hands coated in flour, honey tongues bit by wasps, hornets with yellowing bodies crawling from the bathtub, from the back of my throat. Dry mouth for months. Found gifts in medicine cabinets, in forgotten mothers.
The spine of a woman who can’t remember her first name. A mattress, gutted and gagged, pulled down stairs like a body.
hiiiii it’s christmas soon and since everyone is doing follow forevers I thought I would do one too because it’s been quite a while. Thank you for making my dash awesome and making me laugh and for all the friends I’ve made here, you’re lovely and awesome :) [this isn’t in particular order, i love all of you a lot]
