Blue Wednesday

Given title from way back when I was self assigning projects (I still do that). Trigger warning: abuse, physical & mental

Blue Wednesday

breaking promises is what she does
it’s a habit, taught by an impatient
father figure and lots of drugs

she doesn’t know how to cry
cuz she’s allergic to water
bourbon, beer & barbiturates

are the contouring tutorials
of her youth, her mother’s
lessons, seared on her face

“You look like her…You look
so much like her.”

bruises- highlights- accent
splotched skin and red eyes,
just another sore, sour, blue
