Sometimes My Arms Bend Back

from by Trust Fall



nothing’s changed except for the size of my clothes
and a room facing the other side of my house
I thought I was supposed to grow?
whatever made my brain stretch is now more than dead
a soft swallow on the hard pallet
I can wait because there’s nothing else to do
I will trace handprints on my flesh
I can wait because I can’t trust myself not to
I can wait because it’s a shame not to see the end

and maybe when my teeth come loose in my fingers
I can plant them evenly beneath my headboard
where something beautiful might actually grow

nothing’s changed
