Poem. La La Love.  Katie Lewington. 

Extract from La La Love,  a chapbook available on Gumroad.com

 

the veins on my hand 

bold like a tattoo

i try to push them back in

you comb my wet hair 

sitting in the tub 

splashing 

clipping my nails

i let my hair grow long 

greasy natural oils 

split ended

without other influences i am not a representation of what the world wants me to be.
