I wake up
at four in the morning
and taste smoke
in the back of my throat.
I swear to god,
you’re still burning
somewhere inside me.
This is exactly what I need-
another poem dedicated to someone who’s forgotten me.
Now, the age I thought I’d be your bride in bed
is just the marker of when I’ll be a university graduate.
I am hoping by then to have an education in how to be a girl
who is not defined by a label that’s been slapped upon me.
It was so easy to tattoo “fiancee”
on my chest and play house with you back then.
All it took was four months of shaking to fall asleep.
All it took was promising bridges they’d
feel me float from them in due time.
All it took was ten tons of depression
hitting me in the back room of a bar.
All it took was downing tequila shots
in an attempt to purge my insides.
All it took was shaky nights spent
asking strange men for a cigarette,
so I could doubly flirt with death.
All it took was sitting in the
shadowy ruins of a cigar lounge
in hopes that I would go up in smoke too.
All it took to love you was all of me.
I am still learning about the sort of girl
I am without you to define me.
But I’m not going to carve your initials
into my arm to remember to
care about you anymore.
Nor will I wear “fiancee” like
a death letter around my neck.
That word doesn’t look good on me.
Maybe by twenty-three I will
finally pull your last knife out of me.

WHY DO WE NEVER TALK ABOUT THE FACT THAT FOR THE PAST 15 YEARS IN A SMALL TOWN IN ALASKA THE MAYOR HAS BEEN A CAT
”He doesn’t raise our taxes - we have no sales tax. He doesn’t interfere with business,” said Lauri Stec “He’s honest.”
and he oNLY drinks water from a wine glass
A town decided that a cat would be a better mayor than people
“He’s good, probably the best we’ve had,”

I’m so scared I’m going to fail out I want to throw up.
I want my mommy and daddy I want to go home I want someone to make it all okay. I accidentally slept through the whole day and I really needed it to get things done. I have so much I need to do I haven’t even thought about packing and I don’t know when I’m supposed to be leaving tomorrow. I haven’t eaten all day or anything I legitimately haven’t left my bed. And I would try and get my shit together now and finish all my things now but I haven’t taken my medicine and I’m so close to a panic attack that I’m too scared to push myself.

the way is long but you can make it easy on me,
and the mother we share will never keep our cold hearts from calling.
