trigger warning

cinnamon-apple air freshener spray.
cockroaches.
the bodies of dead cats.
a hand on my neck,
even a lover’s.
urgent, unexpected knocks
on my apartment door.
criminal justice TV shows.
stabbings, even fictional ones.
“we need to talk.”
hotel rooms.
midtown Manhattan.
storage rooms.

and some days,
my own existence.
