To the Woman Crying Uncontrollably in the Stall Next to Me

If you ever woke in your dress at 4am ever closed your legs to a man you loved opened them to one you didn’t moved against a pillow in the dark stood miserably on a beach seaweed clinging to your ankles paid good money for a bad haircut backed away from a mirror that wanted to kill you bled into the back seat for lack of a tampon if you swam across a river under tain sang using a dildo for a microphone stayed up to watch the moon eat the sun entire ripped out the stitches in your heart because whyt not if you think nothing & no one can/ listen I love you joy is coming
