what it feels to repeat over and over

repetition has a certain pathetic
ring
and an affinity
for short panicked breaths
tightening chest
then a
fistful of hair pulled
desperate.

if i told you
all these things
i was lying
if i told you
i was affected
lying too.

repetition that
two-faced vilian.
practice makes perfect
and this…
this…
a tick burrowing in.
