One
by Jennifer Patino


One page poems
because I can't go on
breathing you in
and out
for longer
than one--
it wasn't just
the one, two, six
times--
I can't count anymore
Even asking
for a glass
of water
is a difficult request--
No, see
I didn't give him
permission
to touch me
Not like that--
No, not just once,
again,
I cannot do this
See? The page's end
is near
I'm over here now
forgetting
the best way
I can
