Stalk

Remember the time that I
told you that I thought I’d
break you if I pressed too hard?
Well, I tried and your spine is
like a stalk of bamboo; harder than
it seems at first glance and first
touch and you’re so busy sitting on
your throne of self-denial and
hold-backs that you have all but
forgotten what bitter feels like,
what broken tastes like, and what
cold sounds like.
