Notes On My Typewriter
My typewriter jams every time I try to compose the words that are inside my chest, the only
words you have not yet managed to take. It’s summer, brilliantly blue skies and hot sun that
makes my skin feel like it’s peeling and while everyone else is outside, soaking up this warmth,
I am here, alone, trying to free myself from you.
