Bittersweet Jam

Painful memories
slathered on toast,
burnt by loneliness and shame.

Coffee made of
Silenced wailing,
Drowned in fear.

Breakfast of a disappeared woman.

Next to a glass of rotting milk
the object of an unrequited desire,

Covered by a frayed and faded tablecloth
Numbed into martyrdom,
To infinity.


Debuted at Refraction x Miami Art Week ‘22
