Identity

Identity

Steam rushes to greet

the mirror as I push

the shower curtain

open

so that I can wrap up in

my towel and begin what

was to be a normal

day.

Escape the wet and escape

the scalding heat that

suffocates, wrapping

me.

In my towel I feel

like a wet dog with limp, damp

hair as I move from bathroom to

bedroom.

Catcall. What was

that? I peek my pink

face around the

corner.

Mom sitting on the

couch with some strange

man I’ve never seen

before.

So that’s the source of

the aforementioned

awkward catcall. I

sigh.

He says, “Hello, Beautiful,”

as I stare blankly. Whatever, I

continue my scuttle to my

bedroom.

Mom motions me into the

living room and I resign, still in my

towel. She spoke, “This is your

father.”

I squirm in my seat and open

my mouth to give the only

response I know, “My dad is

Jordan.”

    Hey Nicole,
    I’m really nervous to comment on your post cus you know so much more than me when it comes to writing and believe me I think it is fucking awesome… but, think about this…one you are an aspiring author so you can’t let people see right threw you right away and two, you are you 🙂 no one can stop you even if they tried 🙂
