separate spheres

starting today
I am rewriting the stories
I tell myself
these stories speak freedom in volumes
and there is no mention of cruelties
I exclude then. for I breathe no longer of
injustice, rationalization, or resentment
I write of health and riches
fullness and fulfillment.
I won’t let the color or length of my hair
tangle across synapse
never will my weight, my dress, my shoes
factor in my day’s success
nor will you.
not one whisper or accusation
float back to me.
now are these on separate seas.
