ex #5
“He took the smallest one first. He put it at the bottom. Then he took the slightly bigger one and put it on top of the first one. He kept doing that until there were no more. What he had, in the end, was an upside-down pyramid. Perfectly balanced, with no chance of falling. Being quite proud of himself, he called his wife to come and see. When she came, she nearly feinted. Seeing all her seven children arranged in such a way, she lost it. A week later, she was a single mom of seven.”

and on the days I’m dark, your voice is a quiet light that softly filters in reminding me that all I have to do is breathe, for tomorrow I can try again.

Then I lay me down upon the poppies and ate of the asphodels and my soul clasped hands with the shade that we might descend together toward Taenarus.

Now saw I, in the mirror, the wavering, transparent reflection of Pandean pipes and drinking-vessels, high, pointed hats and fresh countenances with mobile lips; and the innermost meaning of objects became apparent to me.

morning trains go many places. standing knee deep in newspaper clippings while we wait and all the print is irrelevant
since the newspaper is dying and most of these are copies.
more than the wind contributes to gazing at shoes.

A couple of times in your life, it happens like that. You meet a stranger, and all you know is that you need to know everything about them.

ex #4
“Look at me, she said. Look at me closely. What do you see? A million moons, orbiting around a single planet? A field of daffodils, stretching as far as the ocean? A deep, deep pink sky, where birds paint with their wings? No. None of that. You see me. Poor little me. We weren’t meant to be beautiful. We’re broken, falling apart.
He, never taking his eyes off her as she spoke, said: I’d rather fall apart with you than on my own.”

Barebones (Part 3/?)
You hear their careful quotes they recite in anxious
Tones and you feel the pressure in your barebones.
They say "thin," while you think you have a double
Chin and they say "small," like they know anything
About your body at all. You are one hundred pounds
Of your crush's comment: All of her exes end up fat.
You are ninety seven pounds of self-destruction, of
A starve snarl that argues "take that!" You are eighty
Seven pounds of revenge, as if your trauma is a match
For emaciation. And then you're eighty six pounds, on
A blanketed bed. The room smells like Lysol and latex.
And they can't check your vitals without a pediatrician.
And you're triggering just about everyone in the whole
Damn institution. But you've made it. You've won.
This is your throne, this set of barebones.

Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.

"As luck would have it" - I struggle every day with people thinking I lucked out because I came out fair skin, fair haired, and light eyed. I'm not white, I'm a proud latina/black woman!
