She Wants To...

escape the brightness of
smiles and laughter
"too stressful to keep on"
"too dark to encourage"

mirrors distort the perfected
reality of her disease
and even though discomfort cries
"get me out"

she stays where her words drip on
assembled patrons
not risking a flight to a moonlit beach
where she might draw circles in the sand.
