there are plenty of facts that i know to be true:
the earth is round like a marble
a cats meow can warm up the cold places inside of me
faster than whiskey
so why cant i understand this
frozen fist in the pit of my stomach
or the reason i cant be touched without alcohol tracing my veins
i am the girl at attention,
the center, at ease but
never truly
with a sharp smile that pricks but doesn't reach
because i cant understand the cold core
the rocky base of me
that enigmatic little doll
broken & breaking
choking & shaking
from the words in her head trickling
down like little
shards
of
ice
