Glass Rooms
by Erin Jamieson

In glass rooms

I find the bleakest

light- not from the sun

from the shadow of yesterday’s

moonlight, kissing my skin periwinkle

until my body forgets what it feels like

to be held, to be warm, to be anywhere else

without cavernous ceilings and listless people

who smile and nod at the right times

without listening

to a word
