arithmetic

The mythology of me

shattered like untempered glass

It left us cut and bruised with disappointment

We licked our wounds

poisoned our milk

and drank until we became immune

after seemingly endless reprieves

that mattered little to you

I can believe

we made something

that breathed

and dreamed

and walked

I can believe we succeeded

I know we did

if you subtract

me
