Content warning: mental illness


What do you do when it all unspools?

Re-tie? Re-tie? Re-tie?



there’s no forwards but backwards,


why stick a bandaid on a

disintegrating psyche?



we are not just us; we are all of


       so think, if you can,


of seeing an empty hearth 

swept of residual ash,


ready for tonight’s blaze,

amid the winter peltings.
