go back in time, say,
no, little girl,
don’t touch the stove, it’s
too hot and the next morning will taste
of hospitals and your brother will say,
“i told you so”

undo the first moment you were
so sad that the inside of your arms
begged to remember what the sky looked like,
tell your body that blood belongs buried
instead of coursing down your thighs,

undo easter sunday
where you finally snapped and said
“you make me want to die”
undo how you made
your little sister cry

go back in time say, “you will fall
but he will forget to catch you,”
kiss your forehead, say,
“but it gets better,”

go back in time,
show off your healed body where
only kindness grows, a forest where used
to only be wasteland, hold
yourself close and say,
“it’s going to be bad for a long time
but i swear to god
it is so worth staying that even
poets don’t have words”

undo the damage boys did, undo
the skipped meals and “accidents,” undo the hours
of staring at a wall waiting to disappear, undo
the words of girls, undo failed tests, undo
never quite getting
enough
rest

go back in time, hold yourself
and when you come back from where you were
close your eyes and say goodbye

don’t look back anymore.
only go forwards now, only advance now, see,
in five years some version of you is so proud
of who you grew up
to be.

You are a
hurricane of
a girl;

remember
to breathe
every once

in a while,
do not drown
within your
own storm.

his knuckles were white
when they wrapped too tightly
around your wrist

maybe that’s why the first time
your fingers came in contact with
the long line of a cigarette
you fell in love like
smoke-soul artists
do

your skin turned green in the places
he had been

maybe that’s why you’ve always sort of
wanted to be under the grass
rather than bask on top of it

he bled you out
until you became
colorless.
