I have worn the same dress
for four days, because
I am sick, exquisitely
sick --

black and gold, your drunk
dimestore Nefertiti. A
white stain announces
itself, a muddy star:

she coughed
here. Undo yourself,
those sallow words you drink,
let the silk fall loose. I've got
a face like dirty laundry
and burial grounds --
What I touch becomes
unwell. I wear my hair
like it pains me,
blow kisses
like a little girl

sucking her teeth
at cars, the caked little
tombs of sugar that crumble,
naked
under the hot milk
of the sun.
it's not a lie. the older i get the more i become like helena bonham carter. a few weeks ago i found an actual spider in my hair.

i've spent most of today trying not to throw up. white wine in the summertime

edit: another DD, thank you SO much. :heart: all my love from London!

Another one of those pieces where the author's comments are just as good as the feature. :)
