Favorite Quote:
"we should meet in another life/ we should meet in air/ me and you" Lesbos - Sylvia Plath


Father talks about Adam and Eve,
who didn’t have to live in a hospital
He tells me God destroyed two whole cities
to teach people like me a lesson.

I clutch a fire-blanket
around my triangle-loved shoulders.
I am Nun.

Silence cooks my insides
I wear the sticky mask
Sweat slides down the V of my spine
Collects at my base

Father breaks my shell
with the sinking fear that
somewhere
you could be happy
