pain is easier to comprehend even when
you’re another whore reduced from horror. we all deserve
who will throw themselves away
in our name.
you can play jesus,
i’ll play the nail.
– Our Relationship
The second volume of the serial chapbook Mind Static by Anne McMillen. Part two is darker, more cutting, more jarring than the first! Life eviscerated by lost love, dreams and the waking nightmares of coming of age. An observation of the self as much as at society, these poems slice at its fabric. A collection of sobering yet insightful poetic anecdotes and narratives.
