"Codependency in Three Parts" by Avelynne Kang


i. 

when you ask me to come fold your laundry i consider

how it costs 1.5 cents to manufacture a single penny

then begin to miss the extra change in my coinpurse

 

ii.

i have a scab for every time 

you called after i blocked your number

my body feels like one big callus 

 

iii.

lying in your bed which is covered in scabies

my love is a timeshare salesman

and now it wants a mortgage
