After my boyfriend in high school 
tried to kill himself, I dyed my hair black.
I let all the colors in me 
turn into ash & stone; 
I let it be known 
in my face,
in my hair.
My friends said
"You lost your spirit."
But I didn't hear it.
I was lost in the black he & I created.

My mom has a love
of what my dad calls 
silly supernatural things.
Somewhere between my mom's mysticism 
& my dad's skepticism, I was born.
