You’ll Only Forget… by Kyrsten Bean


You’ll Only Forget

This is for all the little demons
who come dancing into my arms
only to fall away like
splintered shards–
only to run out fast.
Those precious souls that
immediately connect.
Their delicate words

that find silhouettes.

It’s a kink in
the picture, a
bent frame, a
time drain, a
blood-stained fracture in my

Lilliputian head

stop taunting me with
sweet nothings, your
crushing hugs, these
invitations into arcane, recondite

unparalleled worlds

you’ll only pull out
wax ten shades of pale
dangle the chain


you’ll only forget.
