Do you ever click your teeth with your fingernails,
feel how finite and fragile they are,
do you ever press your gums and think
how will they last?
“I spend a lot of time thinking about __________.”
You know if you look at a glass of water upside down
in your peripheral vision it seems like it’s filling,
from bottom to top,
but not if you look at it directly.
What do you do when you can’t sleep,
when your roommate has people over and it
doesn’t feel like your home,
where do you go,
or do you sleep in the car?
“List your strengths and weaknesses.”
My weakness is making lists,
is describing myself to others in the way they want,
is I’ve already told you but you cannot hear
that my weakness is my strength.
