Project Description

crammed in and mixed around
little rips of paper
things i wanted to say
repeating questions
the beginning of an equation
something i had figured for a moment
but it wouldn’t stay tied
the plastic garbage bag
full of months silent
is bulging stretch marks

the hole in the side
leaks jumble
a trail to your house
too heavy so tired ripped from dragging
the bottom is breaking
like groceries on the sidewalk
like old feather pillows

how do i let the letters
slide out
let the feathers lift go up
where is the rocky lookout
to fling this off of
