write while naked and pruned from the shower
be a pretty face on a pretty neck
regret weighing yourself at night
nothing more, nothing less
love things so you are soft
break yourself so you are strong
put on clothes that say how to speak
stay up after bedtime and
remember what you wish you forgot
be a gray sheep
dismiss the mask of a wolf
know what you know is a graveyard of lies
hurt in the shallows of your lake
become what you nightmared of a year ago
paint trademarked logos over your eyes
eat and feel nauseous
love people
joke about leaving
plant weeds
