mirrors are best kept hidden

pay homage to Aphrodite

when you kiss the bathroom floor-

moulded tiles against bare flesh

begging for something more (or less)

when did you start hating yourself?

when did you notice you were so far gone

gap-toothed and fawn-eyed and ground up teeth

sicker than you might have lead on

dig a hole, go down the hole

mirrors are best kept hidden.

you think of your mother when she a girl

was the world too big for her too? I profess;

I haven’t slept for (I guess) four days now-

so excuse me if I’m not making much sense.
