Body Talk
By: Abby Conklin

It’s not that your nerves
are shredded, so much as you
are nerves, rubbed
raw and sliced down.
You’re a graveyard
of what has been, what is,
and how you’ve failed
to take the trash out
again, delineations lost
on trains, nights, like this.
Oil-filled snow globes
whose blacks can’t hide
him touching her.  Does your skin
still crawl, so long after
it shouldn’t?

I tried sleeping in someone
else’s bed, and the blessing
was waking to his body’s distance.
Like it knew mine wanted
to scream in raw terror- what,
when, why, sung over on repeat.
Where are these ghosts
from?  Who taught you to scream?
Wait, better- who cares?

Talk to me about trespassed

Touch me, then.
Then, I will listen.
