Head like construction site.

Head like I am trying head like 4.0
to 2.6.
Like I will be fine after ______.
Head like please. Head like still.

Head like chemical spill,
biohazard for an upbeat environment—
Head like stay behind the tape. Like a Hell
you never believed in. Head like aching faith,
like gravel, like bone through blood knees.

Head like a home you don’t recognize.
Like the casing of city, like storm warning,
Category 4: self-diagnosed not good enough
for you anymore
. Head like,

still love me. Head like please.
Head like I am trying head like
I am trying head like I am trying,

Head like help. Head like I need
your help
. Head like go. Like I
am not a child
, like I can do it
on my own
, like don’t

push me.

Head like I am sorry.
Head like I am so sorry.

Head like, please, stay.
