Admissions Fee

This is your price?




fists don’t sound like on TV

no slap

just dull thuds



memories I fought to let go--


To escape

I must learn.

To learn

I must pay.

To pay

I must dig deep

into the cave of forgotten

what should be left;


pick up my soul

analyze its inner workings;


let the scars bleed

take a picture with the blood;


As you demand my traumas

And enter me into a lottery

For scholarship money.
