My father always said he wished the sun had raised my mother
So she would’ve known to come back the next morning.
All these years later I can’t help but think about that
And the weight of oxygen in tired lungs.
Second place started so early
I never knew there was one for first;
A permanent state of eclipse
Where I’m hidden by everything
Anyone could ever love more than a
Glass limbed girl.
