By Raily Orgeron, Crosby, TX

The veins weave like a yarn glove.
I’m pulling threads,
Snagging on rough things.
This young body will be old soon.
I’m feeling lost
And feeling empty
While people learn to grow.
August makes a fire in me,
But it’s January and the leaves are
Falling now.
I’m the one missing out.
I’m like a baby falling into the jaws of a shark,
Into the jaws of hell.
My routines are killing me.

I thought that a good sleep would make me feel sane,
But instead I just felt
More tired.
