"Nobody wanted your dance,
Nobody wanted your strange glitter, your floundering
Drowning life and your effort to save yourself,
Treading water, dancing the dark turmoil,
Looking for something to give."

- Ted Hughes, Birthday Letters (via observando)

My mother was always cutting onions in the kitchen
with steak knifes. Slice, slice, slice.

At five, I sat at the dinner table and watched her.
Hair always pulled back nicely, skin
tan and glowing like cinnamon.
I bet that’s why daddy holds her so tightly
he leaves himself burned in her for days.

She told me she had dreams of dead bodies
swimming in lakes; I held her, told her not to worry.
Daddy would protect her.

The inside of our house always wore white oleanders.
Daddy brought them nearly every other day.
How romantic, I thought. I hope I’m that lucky one day.
The note always said: I love you purely, cleanly.

Mother always began howling when she received
them, and I never understood.
After a while, she stopped. She just
grabbed a vase, placed them somewhere,
and walked away.

My mother was always cutting onions in the kitchen
with steak knifes. Slice, slice, slice.
The thing is, she hated onions. Couldn’t stand them.

But almost every time I saw her: slice, slice, slice.
Now I know there was nothing pretty about it.
Maybe she just liked holding knifes.
Maybe she just needed an excuse for the tears.
