I am ritually sacrificing pieces of myself all the time.
My nerves are beginning to wreck me, I can no longer handle the coffee janky
& my tiny heart, it cannot support anything substantial or whole. Much less
the movement of the sun. 'What a shame, no more beer.'
Drank it all, regretted it. Wished it was back. Cannot save a thing.
Only my healthy amount of self-loathing to propel me. 'It's not all bad', there is a twisting
wonderful in foliage caught between reflecting back blue light & the shadows,
in eggplant cooked with proper stove heat – tasty squid clear, soft, green
& the moment before you convert into sleep & your mind begins to spill into the puddle gutter
of unconscious & you begin recognize the moments amidst the timid confused always
& your awful scowling reflection, when you are a beautiful & living thing.
