In Order to Remind Myself of Orange City.

I took photographs...months after tears had dried...

so you wouldn't forget me....

There is the severity of me, the extent of scars that fall from you....

didn't you know...

and I finished it off, I regarded the night with violence because

you

showed me how...

and the taste of screaming still sits upon my lips, I've licked them for eight-hundred days...

cracked...

mirrors, torn jeans and shirts that never quite made it past six months, but I refused to
trash the clothes I wore on the day the sun forgot to fall...

and you...


you...

found your way home...

cracked...

and bleeding..

I arrived to nowhere...
and took a photograph...
so
I'd
never 
forget.
