They all start with white wings.

I don’t know what happens

but they never stay white.


Mine faded to an ashy gray by my eighth


I didn’t do anything wrong.


Some of them break.

Sometimes in the

middle of flying.


I guess we pretend we’re innocent,

pretend we’re better,

pretend we’re whole.


I’m sick

of pretending.
