we are daring, we

we are daring, we
are impulsive, pushing the
boundaries
of these

tales we tell ourselves, and the
ones into which we aim to grow

there is so much

there is so much
comfort in coming
home, a settling
in upon arrival,
tongues loosening,
mouths wet,
ready to once
again swallow
the world

sometimes, it takes

sometimes, it takes
guts to say things
you wouldn’t think
would require it –
like no, thanks

a dry eye is bravery
blinking a morse code signal –
three short, three long,
three short – my father
taught me this and even
now, i can hear his silvery
dits and dahs demonstrating
this subtle manipulation
of distress

i’m hiding in the bathroom
i haven’t used anything else
