Nothing is forever.

If you ever woke in your dress at 4am ever
closed your legs to a man you loved opened
them for one you didn’t moved against
a pillow in the dark stood miserably on a beach
seaweed clinging to your ankles paid
good money for a bad haircut backed away
from a mirror that wanted to kill you bled
into the back seat for lack of a tampon 
if you swam across a river under rain sang
using a dildo for a microphone stayed up
to watch the moon eat the sun entire 
ripped out the stitches in your heart 
because why not if you think nothing &
no one can / listen I love you joy is coming

To the Woman Crying Uncontrollably in the Next Stall,” Kim Addonizio
