floss between teeth
trapped cavity

clouded images
shattered and broken
light escapes

encrypted messages
i do not know
how to decipher or decode

maintained heaps of
laundry thrown all over

spills of blood and ink
all throughout these pathways

this damage
wrapped up tight, stitched with thread

lips with crack skin
sewn shut

longing to speak
to break silence

but my tongue is full of
gravel and i can’t pull out these
words from my mouth.

i only have shreds of safety
within me.
