[poetry] tiven on acceptance

Posted by rigorousm on May 21, 2015

And you’re right. You should let a person
be cold. You should let a person hurt so much
because people hurt such a large amount,
and almost every person
feels like more than one person

at a time. You’re right. I’m no good
at asking people to stay.

Lucy Tiven, excerpt from “A Foreground”
