There is always one kid that hangs out alone during recess


day dreaming,


making up strange games that no one else understands

The situation varies

from playground to playground

Maybe the kids are mean,

maybe the kid has no friends,

or likes being alone

Maybe this kid is lonely, maybe not

But there is always that kid.

She hears verses in her head
every night
every single goddamned night
stories, and tales of every name
of every person
she doesn’t know
they don’t  exist.
but she hears their verses
as she falls asleep
and as she wakes
her eyes fight to open
for they are pulling her in
back in
trying to keep her there forever.
