We Die Where We Lie — FLB & LB

We Die Where We Lie

by Francesca Lia Block & Lilly Barels


Coming off meds
I wouldn’t go back
to bed
like you asked

I’m the cracked ivory shell
plastered together
too quick to break

You’re the quiet rage
Unexorcised
Cursed

“My animals lead a great life”
Farmer said
“Then just one
shot to the head”
