Are you home?
I want to beg you to sleep with me,
touch my hair,
my cheeks.

I want to say goodbye first this time,
can i hang up the phone on the giving end?
smash it down,
no ****** fingers or wincing.
If I cared less I could
i would've forgotten your name already,
if i could.
love is a wreck, always.
that's what it means, to be in pieces.

but my mother's hands
made something for him, a husband,
The Husband,
and he wore them for a while.
Perhaps childish,
the colours slightly faded,
maybe her devotion
I don't know,
but he pushed them to the back
of the cupboard in a corner of their

My mother is unhappy,
she doesn't know it,
or why,
but maybe it has something to do with
those shorts on the shelf
collecting dust.

All we do
is say the same words
in a different order
in a different language.

I say,
I don't want to eat,
