Oxford

My walk to class is through a mustard gas cloud

That jokes as it chokes me

That my imposter feeling is confirmed by the others

Posturing

Straight-backed

Swinging dicks that crash into my cheeks

And by the time I reach the door I can but crawl along a glass-smashed floor.

 

This place is a biological weapon against mental health.

 

No amount of music

Slow or velvet or sweet or harsh noise

Can drown out the dread drone of ‘yeah, i’m okay’

That reverberates the way laughs are meant to

On walls covered in itgetsbetter graffiti

Which is made worse by how faint it’s getting.

There will be a day where these knots of words and buckled knees

Will prove you profitable

And those rosy, anxious cheeks will be your selling point

But till you hit that graduating puberty

You will be locked in a weak adolescence

That is made all the more bubble-like

In the way it bursts your insides.
