Distilled into a single moment
an exploding star
My heart on my pinafore
Blood again
Scrubbing out the sky with the bleach in my brain
Don’t look up
Don’t look
The star sighs in death and joins the others
A constellation
Ruined panties in an expanding universe
I look up and see my face in the mirror
I look pretty
You can’t even tell where the blood was
