ZOFRAN - Hannah Miet

Updated: Aug 29, 2023

Why can’t I just Botox

til I’m creamy and smooth

like the baby I don’t remember being —


a soft thing that spits up

and cries out, then stops

crying, knowing nothing

of interminable descents —


Me, I know everything about staring

with last-dash hope

at a spot on the sea’s horizon:

temples fuzzy, dizzy


when I stand. Me, I’ve had enough

of the kind of swell you don’t

choose, the kind that feels like a mean


God gave it, dropped everyone on one ship’s

radio station, and me, in between

channels. The mad static

curdles the frequency


while every signal shakes the boat.
