The Weight-Kate Kueter

They scream at It, you.

Miserable, spine-breaking, infuriating,

toxic, quiet, mutant,

imposing, annoying.


The mind is a knot,

Impossible knot,

The body is scared,

With words.


It screams at itself

Try it on for size!

Mirror looking back at It,

Water falls away, and the choice is made.


A million voices told It the key is to be



We know for sure,

You finished first.
