Re-Imagine Myself – Kindra M. Austin

I’m all I ever wanted

in a woman, I imagine at noon

when I’m thinkin ’bout drinkin.

I don’t have a fuckin’ problem.

But beneath the moon I re-imagine

myself sober,

just like mother


could be.


Major depressive

cloaked in shadows cast by butter sun.

I am exemplary

until I’m extraordinary.

I re-imagine myself in facets:



not made yet.


not formed yet.


not burnt yet.


not baked yet.



not drank yet.



Re-Imagine Myself is from Kindra M. Austin’s most recent collection of poetry, Heavy Mental Poetry.
