"something i cannot reach"

she lays in someone else's bed
and tries to solve an equation
to make her head stop throbbing.
she fails. and she wonders
what potential for destruction
rests inside of her.

in nothing but panties,
hands over her breasts,
she remembers where she came from:
glass shattering,
chair throwing,
arms twisting.

and if no one is there
to smack the brain cells out of her head
and drag her by her hair and claw into her shoulders,
she'll just douse her mind in chemicals on her own.
