this week i realized why tv dramas are set in hospitals

this week i noticed how death outlines my eyes

this week i heard frank ocean's song Provider

this week i slept in the hospital twice

this week i rushed to get here based on a feeling

this week we will have to say goodbye in our own way

this week my therapist said come to completion while he's still alive

this week i said to the hospital staff: this is your world

this week the more urgent your situation the bigger the view

this week my dad's head looks like the full moon

this week we'll never be the same

this week death is only the beginning of more endings

this week we cry when we are alone

this week i held his hand

this week he's at the bottom of the sea

this week i said i love you and you did the best you could

this week i'm the daughter of the moon again

this week the indian doctors don't make eye contact

this week a fever equals anger trapped in the body

this week everyone calls you

this week other people's anxiety aggravates you

this week i wonder who will get out of this year alive

this week i remembered there are worse things than death

this week i believed more in the divine

this week the nurse said he can hear you

this week we have to be death doulas

this week we'll say its ok if you want to go

this week i remembered he's my dad

this week you can get lost in medical details

this week i wonder what our spirits say to each other when we're asleep in the same room

this week you want to write even when you're tired

this week the meaning pours out of you

this week my cousin says they'll read the gita for four days

this week i'm glad i moved home

this week my mom is the strongest force i know

this week i know who i am
