words are fraying tethers.
The interior of our childrens schools feel other-wordly now, dare we place a toe over the treshold.
I thought of the end and / I met it for what it was.
inches from the nowhere drain
it took a year for it / to die, shelled and / alone in a far corner of / the unkempt living room.
descend and dissolve
because I don't / know how to know / it any other way
Let’s stop making other peoples bodies our business.
the thought of it being anything other than a chair scares you.
like placing paper / to the flame.
