Dysphoria

“There’s no such thing as a bad photograph.”

gravity

pulls me back down

 I mile fuzzy & comforting eyes

 down down clear straight lines

 menacing guess in a loud rapid

 voice & eye snap back to sentence

& by the time I’ve finished there’s

only dysphoria & impaired speech

left to congeal on the carpet &

the last of my family members

notices me &  looking at me it

tilts – careful my mother!
