Lucia Morello: “good morning texts”

good morning texts

good morning, my beautiful girl
my butterfly girl
my every-star-in-the-sky girl
my girl, the “my” something
i swirl around in my mouth for a moment,
allow myself to choke on it
allow myself to be comfortable with this idea
of possession, of possessing
of being something that haunts and follows
the shadow in the background
that ruins the photograph
