So did anyone hear about the officer who placed a woman under arrest for breastfeeding in NYC? She went to get on her bus, he pulled her back by the collar of her shirt, and as a result she dropped her 3 month old baby. He still placed her under arrest while her baby was lying on the concrete with a cracked skull. Her daughter died at the hospital while she was at the police station. He’s on PAID leave.

Clammy hands and 

Cold chested,

you are a rung-less ladder.

Nothing to cling to.

Scrabbling through the mud and

Sinew, I

With my bleeding fingertips,

I unearth your ivory ribs packed with dirt and-

Not a tulip in sight.

Your body is a cavern.

The sun has not risen.

I sit and stare and wait and stare

and-

Phosphene. 

You’ve done it again- a trick of the light,

And I am stuck, still.

On you and your kindness.

Your sugar lips, and doll eyes,

You.

Imposter, you.

I am forever in your debt.
