there are 206 bones in the
human body. it only takes one good
squeeze and your neck can snap as
easily as a twig.

once, when i was at the grocery
store, i came across a crate of
peaches. they were on sale because
every single one was bruised and it
made me think, "we're all just pieces of fruit
left to rot. as soon as we've been dropped on the
floor, no one wants to help us back up."

i've forgotten how to think in poetics.

three months ago i would have
compared people to roses. pretty little petals
that can be crushed with just
one little pinch and thorny stems that
whisper "don't touch me."

but now,
i think we're more like
bombshells; jammed
together like suffocating sardines in tiny
wooden boxes decorated with red
paint announcing across the sides
"danger: this side up."
I actually like this one.

Human beings are fragile yet at the same time so utterly stubborn.

I shouldn't be allowed to think to much.
