(I wonder how many times I fell)
Mother, the fact remains: I want
(to become a ghost)
to hurt you in the subtlest ways.
The smell of bourbon pulses behind our eyes (which are holes cut into sheets)


These are maybe examples, though idk if they hit the scary scary factor enough.

I like it a lot. Sorry, I know that's like the least helpful thing I could say. Hopefully I can expound more later, but have you considered submitting it anywhere? I do think it's really good; kind of reminds me of Raymond Carver maybe?

"Sorry, I know that's like the least helpful thing I could say."

I like it a lot, too.

Something I keep noticing when I come back to it is that it's shorter than I'm expecting. Even internally some of the lines are, like, puny. With foreknowledge of how much it contains, I'm always surprised it's so small.

This probably isn't helpful to you, it's just something I'm kinda fascinated with right now.

I'm not sure how much you want to hear from me.
