The bulimia years
Sound of ring clinking sink. Of faucet running
till warm water. Sound of toilette lid opening. Of human
heaving. Splash-of-water sound. More heaving: more splash.
Sound of toilette paper unloosening from squeaky roll.
Nose-being-blown sound. Silence. Sound of hand hitting wall.
Toilette flush. Muffled sound
of lid closing. Water-refilling-tank.Toilette-flushing-again sound.
Silence: throat clearing. Door opening
on rusty hinge. Sound girl makes as she stares into a mirror.
