I meet a lot of people 

coming out of trauma 

they make it sound thrilling 

connecting with something 

that gives them 

so much meaning 

before I can wish it 

could happen to me 

they’ve got me up to 

my bare sleeves


I breathe them in 

over my skin 

before I can tell 

what’s happening 

I’m feeling horrific visions 

blended with love 

resembling the predictions 

science warns us about 

I’m telling you all about it 

just telling you all about it
