photoSTAT four: Shaven Head of the Family/ Her Hands Are Many

 

Chin up

Chip in

                        & put some thought into it

you’re right where you’re supposed to be, darling

                    look ahead, not at your feet

                                                        hands around your own throat instead of on the tripod

                                     your energy is high, and you’re right where you’re supposed to be, honey

‘pray silence, please’ is tattooed on your shaven skull

your toes are webbed and the feet push off the side

the children wave to mommy before they go down the slide

wow

just wow

thank you Universe from the bottom of my bleeding heart, for I am where I wanna be, right now

they follow your every move, they see through your eyes as you sleep, wherever you go the helmet attracts sympathy but it is not as practical as you think

(naming them idiot children of the institution will be your downfall)

every day’s a gift, every day’s a fresh start, every day’s somewhere new, every day’s someone’s last
