In a dream I stab myself in
the face with a toy sword
I’m on a bus and hope no one
else on the bus can see me as I
inch the sword out of my body
I babysit a child who is actually
a doll covered in glitter
and I’m bad at it.
A man stands at a podium and tells
the crowd that my father
is a rapist and a criminal and
not their best. Objectively true:
I am making a list of ways your fathers
have wronged me. I am reading the list on
a bus and no one can see me.
