I.
x’s favorite part
of decorating
xmas tress
was ripping
the roots out
of the ground.

she would spit
words like,
“stop holding
on, the dirt
doesn’t want
you anymore.”

II.
x’s left hand
is in love with x’s
right hand
but they must
wait for x
to fall asleep to
get a little
god
damn
privacy.

III.
when the tornado
sirens would
sound in x’s
town, she
would drop
her head and pray
that this one
would finally

rip
up
every
thing
she
knew.

IV.
on wednesday
afternoons
one could find
x spread
out over the
natural science
literature
in the
library stacks,
whispering loudly
to herself,

“I’ve got to
break up with
life before life
breaks up
with me.”
