"lille havfrue

 

this is what they don’t tell you

about when the food refuses

to enter your mouth

like two magnets with the same charge:

it takes your voice.

and every step you take

is like walking on knives

as well as every word you say

you are always exhausted

and everything hurts.         

when you try to sing it comes out hoarse

and off key because the emptiness

has made your throat angry

and you don’t know how to fill it up

when this body has ceased to be your own"
