pink sweater

think i used to think

forever was a mile marker

state line i’d straddle

and we’d pretend to always be young

these hearts are already older

than they were before

take a breath

do it deep and speak

on the exhale

what will i need to relearn

forty times over

create culture

with the once or twice

each day i decide to be this way

hope you see me

behind your closed lids

still

and quiet

and screaming crying

and running

knotting over what we did

never knowing what we say

now
