"All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know.”
"Madame, all stories, if continued far enough, end in death, and he is no true-story teller who would keep that from you."
-Ernest Hemingway


When you look at me
I don’t suppose that you see what is inside.
The fire that chokes me now
Because I’m crying
Tears like acid
And no one can see
It’s not as if I tried to hide it.
It’s not as if you can’t look
And find me
In a ball on the ground with black smoke around me
Like a baby whose mom is gone.
But I the one gone
From my own body.
Just a shell walking and talking
But I don’t suppose
That when you look at me
You ever see the cavern inside
Wide as an ocean
Sparse as a dessert.
And looking through me you don’t see
I am blank
I am cold
I am breaking
