Hollow Lullabies

Hollow Lullabies

A Poem by Caitlyn Lacovara


Inconsistency is my only religion

Coerced into practice, not preached

Praying on my hands and knees;

While the clock strikes six twice

The brooding brain wakes

Caressed by intangibly toxic love

Amongst the banter of the city walls:


I wouldn’t know what normal was

Even if it etched its way into my flesh

Like the tattoo stained on my shoulder.
