I Burned


the shower was on, but i sat on the floor of the tub
letting the water hit the back of my head.
i watched beads of water glide down my unwashed hair while trying to will my nausea away.
i threw up again instead.

the water was too hot, but i had neither the will nor the energy to fix it.

i burned
and thought about the act of compromise.
