Sadie Pt. 2 | Cori Diaz

Her apartment was in bad shape because it was made in the 80’s No, this isn't her fault.

Besides, she’s got hardwood floors


A clawfoot tub


And a ringing metal furnace


What do you do?


Me? Well, I do nothing. I wrote poetry once but not anymore You should write again

But I don’t have any words in my head


No bloody knife –


Antiseptic, maybe,


And a bit of gauze.


Would you bandage me up if I let you?


Would you make me better if I asked?


Do you lick me like your cats for this very reason?
