Tay Mabelitini’s “number two-hundred (on the art of telling our stories)”

it is disorienting

to open your wounds to others

and say

please tell me you believe me

and to hear

in return

me too

what a strange club

none of us asked to join

do your scars ache like mine do?

doesn’t it hurt like hell?

– number two-hundred

(on the art of telling our stories)
