On the existential dread I feel after watching Yellowjackets

by Katy Scarlett

To die that way:
Pink plastic makeup kit
Witch hazel, acne
Tiny pink and yellow
flowers on cotton
Her eye, almost ripped
from its socket
her best friend
her ribcage
her evil, her inner
the air, it wants
to kill us
a branch, or branches.
freezing is the best
fast and warm

keychains, lunch  
yes, I’ve slept with
her boyfriend,  
barrettes, scattered,
and my breasts, still new.
shoelace to sneaker
my best friend
bleeds, I’m sorry  
it’s hard to be
a girl,
trash, inhale
cake and sleep
my body,
They say
way to go,
like falling asleep.
