I am living on an island


which is a metaphor for how I

feel but is also an actual island I’m

behind on my everything I’ve been

tired for generations most days I don’t

know what day it is slept through a

workshop on motherhood & capitalism &

I’m certain that means something about

vulnerability & how now that I’m just

milk & lullaby all I want is to make you

laugh when you ask how I’m doing you

ever just want to watch videos of coral

spawning a whole constellation under

water thinking no one is ever hydrated &

even the sea is losing itself
