scared but hungry,
when someone tells you yes it always means
how can you be tired of running
when you can’t even
get out of bed
ode to anne
I don’t know how to tell you this,
I drove you out the house.
I had to,
you pushed me out the window.
you killed me in your sleep.
your coat’s too big,
but it’s cold, and it’s all I have.
I wear your wedding ring on a necklace.
I keep strands of your hair in tea bags.
I built a city on your bones.
