Floating out of Body – By: Bri Griffith

A coworker of mine once compared her tongue

to a balloon animal,


and I think I’m a balloon animal, too—


a pull-my-right-arm-my-left-arm-shrinks

kind of shape shifter—


I’m a liar,


I don’t want to tell her

I feel just as heavy

as I did our first session,


and I won’t take medication,


I’m floating out

   of my body.
