what is the sound

the carnivore makes?

its the self same sound

of a heart sighing as it breaks

the sound of you waiting there

for the moon to rise

the smooth whimper humming

of the tears in her eyes

a familiar violent sound

of you lifting your head

to the whisper of a mirror

saying they’ll think you’re beautiful when you’re dead
