Hopeless Woman

The chronology

of human existence

shows up

long as a scroll.

 

Oh, you’re here

 

I, the one that doesn’t look good in suburban coddle.

 

This brain

this past.

Illegal as sin, imagine it, ha!

 

I slipped in

this is why we need better security

to keep that mind

that brain

that past

 

OUT

 

Fine.

I’d rather be in the terrifying vastness of land

that lets you breathe

Than a plush jail cell

Where your rhinestone handcuffs trick you into thinking that you’re better than me

As you dream about breathing

in a vast, terrifying land.
