You were born on a leap year.
Fill in the gaps.
Spinning gears keep catching your cracks, skipping teeth, keep calling you back, telling stories, pretending they're fact.
Let me go too unstable wane.
Chewing wildflowers to numb the pain

Cut the lines. You'll be fine.
But if you break when I break will you carry me away,
Will you fall on your blade
just to hear when I'm saying I can't?

You came out, started bruising.
Find it tough to admit when you're losing.
Oh what should I think?
Carefully crafted commercial disaster.
They take what your after to get what they want out of you.

Dissociate from touch. You're tilting to pull the others with you. Posed shakespearean skull, we see in different pictures. You play the imperial stealing the power to waste away.

You took the comfort from the lights in her soul. Projected map of the body, its crass/abject/colonial. You passed dis-ease presented to you at birth. Held underwater told to scream your self worth. It wasn't good enough. Entrust the secrets to the backs of your arms: Killing the self as to protect it from harm.
