Dollhouses & War

The first attempt at proper poetry and the next and the next.
"Not a tea stain, but a rain stain,"
"Does my heart tangle like headphones in a pocket?"
"...mascara tears registers exhilaration under rapid music beats. "
"Love is the only blood we will bleed as / Together we fall into a rainstorm."


18. Toe, Heel and Click, Clack


The heels of my boots serenade the distance between us, 

toe, heel, lamenting the transition from four years of

boy talk and best friend talk, 

to two years of silence and denial. 


How did this happen? 

How did the document on my laptop, 

titled Anecdotes of my Annoyance, 

translate to everything you did to 

annoy my skin from my bones? 


How did the words, 

"You were never my best friend." 

Leave your lips with a punching


delivering the one thing

that put us in our graves? 


But this is where we are now, 

two strangers 

with the click, clack of high heels 

making the silence louder than

our friendship ever was.
