TW ! This is a more graphic piece that I wrote when I was deep in active addiction.

My Black Hole

A black hole is a region of space time
exhibiting gravitational acceleration so strong that nothing – no particles or electromagnetic radiation such as light can escape from it….


All the chicken soup
In the world
Could not breathe into me
New life

My Roommate

fast lane, fast cars
long lines and dive bars
motorcars, guitars, and writing memoirs
of a prodigal daughter
and I walk like a lamb to the slaughter
