room

summer is back

that old friend who destroys me

and i have these words in ink

not on my skin this time

bleeding into paper instead

sting-smelling Sharpies

the ache of outstretched fingers

what am i reaching for

there isn’t room

on my forearm

for all the hope

i need to be reminded of
