She’s perched atop the yellow plastic pyramid of a playground roof, knees pulled up against her chest.  Graffiti scrawls by various patients writhe about her toes; various obscenities and gang names worn by the passage of time. Loose wisps of her hair whip to and fro in the breeze.
To her left, the hospital walls loom in layers of white and multicolours. To her right: the car park building and beyond that, the city's buildings with their neon advertisements.  She feels akin to the birds about her; wishes she were light and able to just up and float away from this reality.  
Featherless bird; sitting atop the playground of a children's psychiatric unit, wishing to disappear.
The deep cuts on her thigh, hidden by her skirt and a makeshift tourniquet of toilet tissue and a hair tie, throb reassuringly. She feels a certain comfort in knowing that the nurses have no idea of their existence - she doesn’t want them dressed. Doesn’t want to be cared

imperfect punctuation
the words are etched into
thick purple bands - cuffs
coursing, caustic
open, wide-eyed stranger
i see a sentence in the mirror
staring, the punctuation
imperfect it accuses vehemently
it is, it is my mind speaking
in excess and
marking permanently
beneath the too-much, the waste
the alkaline verses pulse
pulling the fragments up
and down the path of my tongue
to nothing at all

Fuck kayla I miss you so bad today, don't know why today maybe it's because I've been listening to the song on your memorial page over and over, in fact that's probably why, anyway I hope you're happier now. xoxoxoxoxox

You probably don't remember who I am, but we were in a few classes together at TGC. I hope you're in a better place now, rest in peace.
