  Confessions   While others slept, I slipped into your clothes, dressing up, pretending to be you as little sisters often do.   I remember, you would paint my nails, We would play with barbies and teacups, You liked to dress me up, always wanting a little sister.   Then I learned to lie at […]

  Self Portrait as Rapunzel’s Hair   First, I was comb controlled, a straight-teeth, barely-banged mini pig-tailed temple. Today, I enter a hay thrasher for a braid machine. I cover myself in an acre of blue bows. I keratin, I frizz, I fuck him. Naked, he lays his breastplate aside and swims within me like […]

  Right to release   For the longest time, I dreaded bathrooms, the bleach singing nostrils, I pictured my brown mama in every white person’s house, scrubbing tile making what other people took for granted, shine.   In airports, I clench my bladder. in public anywhere, I hold it until a 3rd floor walk up […]

  storm clouds will poison you   Dear Infant/Hydrangea, Chains of those flowers will forever connect whatever you’re reading with what I’m reading, what you taste with this next thought.

I practice epilogue: needlethreadepi- thelium.  As what constitutes mean is the variance.  Perhaps I fly hollow.  Into some you, then.  And rest.  And where will the drama queen darling?  My tongue is thin without your tongue to build a […]
