My Inside Voice


I want to bash my head in

whenever I rush my speech.

There are so many things that I could do

(to avoid hurting you)

but I think I’ll drill a hole.

And my favorite part of my brain

is my amygdala

because she tries so hard to hold my hand.

I watch her fall from my skull

and think to myself, Okay.

I’ve said all there is to say.

Over and over

(because I am)

I feel as though I am writing the same words

and the same words
