“Echo” by Jo Kolar.

Potential trigger warning: This poem may have references to acts of self-harm.


An echo.
That vibrates in a soundless room
That nicks the walls
That stains the tub
That crumples the sheets
But leaves me alone
Except for the scar on my cheek
The things I do to myself
I don’t know why.
