Poetry from Lorelyn Arevalo

archaeùlogy

picking up
the remnants of what was,
the could haves and would haves
securing them in an amber
worn around her neck
laced with flesh-eating bacter(I)um
inflaming her voicebox
digging up corrosives
burying her confidence
with every negative
self-talk

xxxxx

petrichor

seeping into 
pillows and sheets
housing your scent
and mine...
before i rain
