_a girl and boy
with their mutual
wrists slit and covered
in gauze
are falling in love
between group therapy
and afternoon snack
they pass notes
and poems to each other
in origami sculptures
kissing in the far
corner of the
smoking patio
away from the
fluorescent lights

until one is discharged
and the other
wails into bedpans
and undermines
morning arts and crafts
in misery,
waiting to escape
to the outside
world for bitter
delusions of a
fairy tale
with bad timing

Sad and wonderful poem. Love the irony at the end.

Ah, this is lovely! Very, very tragic but the language in this piece is beautiful. I especially like the ending because it makes it feel authentic and true, often our desires have the worst timing in the world.
