hole.

Monika Thelen

 

biting!

yes-

gnashing

 

and raking across

 

the eyes of my enemies

 

but maybe

just maybe

 

those

eyes

are

 

mine.

 

?

 

it's hard to

tell

 

really

 

sometimes

snicker snack

is not quite enough

for me

 

not fractured enough

 

too hole

 

whole?

 

hole.

 

in.

com.

plete?

 

divided into

seperate

meanings

 

in

:

within

inside

home.

 

com:

com home

com back

com to me

com for me

com from me

com

without

me

 

plete:

de-pleted

uranium

shells

 

pieces of wars

 

too perfect

a word

for a girl like me

 

I do. not. deserve.

to be

in

com

plete

 

rather, not hole

not holy enough

 

never-quite-reaching

resolution
