she says she likes to be alone
until she's seated at a marble counter,
pitting open a grapefruit and
smiling fondly at its pinky-orange nectar,
refrigerator hum echoing
in the dimly empty house,

seeping into her day-old papercuts,
her slurps rudely remind her that
she is human
and cannot become unhinged
because bones are nothing
if not persistent
