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.
