"

Why?
Because I’m losing the excuse of youth. Because I’ve forgotten to take my medication. Because I’ve taken my medication. Because I can’t get out of bed.

Because I don’t deserve food and shelter. Because I’m sobering up.

Because I want to be a baby again. Because I’m selfish. Because I hate my face. Because I could never break things gently. Because it’s familiar. Because it’s comfortable. Because it’s a cancer. Because it’s a dog I can’t put down.

Because I’m tired. Because I’ve been proselytised into consumption. Because money is power. Because I’m a palimpsest for embarrassment. Because words fall flat.

Because flowers only flourish from the filth.
