X-rays and broken heartsJanet Kuypers
X-rays of small children
adult teeth push those baby teeth
I mean, it’s not like your hair
it’s not like shedding
These are bones,
And I wonder why
after it has been broken
after you’re been fired
or after you’re sent you can’t
Or after you find your one
Or after your family dies,
After it feels like your heart
it make me wonder why
