PLAYLIST and a poem

Below, is an excerpt from my diary/book MENSES (coming out in October of 2020), where I chronicle the aging body abandoning its budding form.

XII.

Don’t you realize,

there are more important things  than sex,

money and blood?

a child only gets a few times to break its bones, 

before it’s permanent.

bones heal, congeal—

pieces of them stuck in the crevices of trauma, shame—

if we don’t medicate, if we don’t break,

we remain infantile—

responsibility, subdued—
