“Cover Down/Strip Up”

Developed a habit
of curling up in a ball
as I release the unneeded.

Bare it all out, because I’m tired
of getting scared when I see your name.
I need to man up.

The style of mum is old, so I’ll
just let the oxygen play inside
as the tower crumbles and falls on me,

because maybe, I thought,
it’ll feel a little better than keeping
all of the thorns in.
