my grandmother's tartan bag sits on an upside-down bucket in the basement,
full to the brim with little liquor bottles and cardboard boxes
I go to do the laundry,
pass it twice an hour
and every time, just for a moment, I think she's visiting

do not wipe the sweat from your forehead.
cut your fingernails with a sharp tongue
until they bleed. do not launder your bed
sheets, do not dust off your insecurities.
& everything else.
make an excuse to visit the cemetery;
try and fail to put to rest the festering
that has become you.
hammer the nail so deep into the coffin
that you can hear your late grandfather’s
welding tools mold metal abstractly.
gargle salt water and then spit at the mirror.
tell yourself this will be the last time you caress cursed skin.
tell yourself you never saw him leaving.
call yourself a liar.
resist collapsing like a purposeless mess.
give in like everything else.
pull yourself together for the time being,
then break all the clocks.
ThingsAs you may have noticed, I've been extremely inactive here lately. Things have become progressively more overwhelming and I don't think I'm going to be able to write regularly again or contribute here for a little while. You might see me around now and again, and there will - sometime, I'm sure - be another time but it's not right now.Things by archelyxs
So this is a general thank you, for being so supportive and amazing. I miss many of you very much, and I'll continue missing you.
