a poem about dysphoria

crevice cutting the road

I thought I’d try out the WordPress monthly word prompt: BRIDGE.

Between my skin

and my mind

I’ve carved

a divide

friction

like sandpaper

harrows my bones

whenever skin

and mind

touch

on the topic

of voiceboxes

and internal

monologues

spoken

synchronously.

dissonant

screams

dreams

NO

dise

ngage repeat, dis

engage
