little miss queenofhearts,

playing dress-up with the clothes

she knows won't fit

around her (hallowed) dresden bones

sticking out from her hips

as her fingers trace the marks

gracefully, like a ballerina's last spin-

before she falls

onto the concrete and

bleeds out her

i m p e r f e c t i o n s

through her lips


and she thinks tomarrow

she'll start over (be smaller)


little miss queenofhearts--



she. wants. to. dance. on. water.
