I’M PAINTING A HATRED OF YOU by ARIELLE TIPA

my twin, my twitch –

prettily you demonstrate your lazy eye

the rococo latticework of your scapula –

you are most beautiful in braille

my hammock, my summer

my opium glitch, my tambourine din

i’ve been cat-tongued in places you have never lived

in tantrums you have never nursed

you are killing me to death

my ictus, my itch



Arielle Tipa is a writer who lives near a haunted lake in New York. Her work has appeared in GrimoireMillennial Pink, among others, and is forthcoming in Ache and Dream Pop Press. She is the founding editor of Occulum
