she's injecting - andrej bilovsky

It looks like doing damage but it's really healing. A clean needle breaks a few capillaries, injects insulin.

In the mirror, she's reminded of her ex, the one who rubber-wrapped his veins so tight, the first prick of a syringe burst them.

He made his healthy body sick. She's aiming for the reverse of that.

So these days she listens to her doctor,

not Matt. And there’s no need

to even have his baby.

Andrej Bilovsky (he/him) is a queer poet and performance artist. Former editor of Masculine-Feminine and Kapesnik. His poetry can be found at the Quiver and Down In The Dirt.
