Becoming a Nobody

This poem was written specifically for my portfolio I had to submit in order to be selected into a creative writing class at University…

Becoming a Nobody

Close those eyes and bite

A bit harder

Indifference creeping

Hands violent pressing

…silent aching

Arch an eyebrow

Smile, baby, smile

Clatter of dishes falling

Backing away


Whatthefuck girl,

Table 12 needs to order.’

Bumble and fumble

Starry-gazed and lying

Light a smoke and lose yourself

In the ashes.
