T.K. Edmond: This Is Ok

Self Help


I enjoy this

fantasy where my cells

are a trillion mirrors

of my dysfunction,

ego, illness. They inter-

act on a generational,

familial level. The fight,

make up, the closure

is how my body breaks

& mends

& it is never over.



How to Make Hay

Your bees are humming their golden hymn:

Work hard.

Shit gold.

Tattoo one line at a time across your knuckles—

alternating, stacked, flipped—

every time you forget.

You will end up with an illegible mess.

This is ok.

It will become beautiful.

There will be pain and scars.

This is ok.

It will get easier.
