Sudafed Beach

Sitting in a pitch-black attic for decades.

a perfect place

cough medicine and shame

yellow skin

fit in

to him


no one can relate

self-revelation forgotten

illumination faced

daily basis

lost temper

dissociate with the same anticipation


Dissociatives have never been so welcome.

  1. I like the yellow skin fitting into him not just fitting him, as if it’s somehow invading him or burrowing into him making him sick

  2. Did you do the drawing as well?

  3. That first line makes me think of The Addams Family
