I am tired.

By Demetra

I am tired.

I am so very tired.

To type this “t” –
Or this “i”
This “r”
This “e”
This “d”

It takes a multitude.

It’s in my diamond knuckles.
And my cathedral step.
The cat-grace of my back.
And smiiiiiiiile.

(the loopy smile that widens like the crescent moon,
and wanes away just as quick)

I’m sorry.
I don’t know what to say
Other than, “I’m sorry”

I wish I wasn’t collapsing in on myself
A green-eyed-long-haired-black-wearing-hole

I wish the thousand little horses
That run the pitter patter lub dub
Around my ribs
Weren’t falling

But mostly, I wish I wasn’t indifferent
To me.
And especially, to you.

I am tired.
