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.
