You Goddamned Beautiful Disaster

hi I'm Ana, and i'm going to need you to leave.
(18, Anthropology major so far, she/her, really mean)

The sky has stopped
offering you reasons to live and your heart is the rock
you threw through each window
of what’s deserted you, so you turn
to the burnt out building inside you: the scaffolding
overhead, the fallen beams,
the unsound framework;

according to the blue that’s printed on the inside of your arms
you have no plans, no plans
uncovered, or uncovering: the offing is emptying,

the horizon empty

now that your sanity is
a tarp or a bedsheet
in the rough hands of the wind,

now that everything is hooded
in drop cloth.

It didn’t happen
overnight. Or maybe it did:

your heart, the rock;
your soul, the Gothic barn.
