The Skin I'm In (Found Poem)


United States

She was a freak like me,

that amazon woman-teacher.

My eyes ricochet like pin-balls.

Like a blue-black sky after it’s rained

and rained…

Stitching forever unraveling.

“I deserve better.”

Saying that is one thing,

making it happen is something else.
