out of the pink room

inside

bubble gum pink.

four walls.

a bed.

she was twenty-four years old with a voice to scream at the staff watching at the window

velcro straps don’t speak

but if they could

they would say

SHUT UP. 

NO ONE CARES.

NO ONE IS COMING TO LET YOU GO.

she pled for the  bathroom

please

please

please

please 

when the staff opened the door,

they found a limp soul who had wet the bed.

outside

they crushed me into a pink hospital box

but i just wrote them on a page

and they cannot get their straps on me

my voice has gone completely free
