Snow White (For Me and A)

We are the motherless girls
lost in the forest
living in a cottage
full of enemies
because somehow this is safer

than tearing our hearts from our chests
to please her

we know the danger
but so many times
we answer the door anyway
and take the trinkets
because this time they won’t be poisoned
this time…
this time…
this time….

We wore the ribbons and combed our hair
but all of her sustenance was poison

enough to make us choke
