25 Mar Sara Sutterlin

In this town,
I have no language
only Theirs
you know saying Me Too
is an act of courage

Your bedroom has five windows
and a door
and I still chose to Stay
We are two little
sweaty egos
I watch you kiss the inside
of my thighs
like you’re doing it to Someone Else

Coaxing you into domestic Hell
with Me

 

 

 

We eat strawberries
and snort adderall
Alek hands me some sort of craft beer
and I think bad thoughts
about America again
I peel the label off and curse it
It seems like a half-hearted attempt
to be a
Good Guy, a Myth.

I pratice Lying with men
It’s easy, it’s all they want to hear
Yes, easy to be someone else
because they are attracted to
caricatures, one dimensional
selected parts of
Womanhood.


Sara Sutterlin is a writer living in Montreal. Metatron published her debut collection, I Wanted To Be The Knife.
