illustration by Tara Palov


I took a journey to the recesses of my
ironclad bones
and allowed the fatigue to just sit there
with nothing left to do

I dug through the stories
and burnt the good ones
leaving me to scope and stir and prod
the fowl mouthed disappointments

I swam in the depths of uncomfortable spaces to
unconvince myself

they were all lies anyway
but maybe not to me

I pour my tears into a cup
and will keep filling it
until I am free
