My, My, My by Sarosh Nandwani

I am used to things burning:
My skin after facial peels, my
Follicles after the shave, my
Eyebrows after the threading, my
Vagina during the blood bath, my
Eyes after the makeup, my
Throat after the allergies, my
Blood after the interruption, my
Temples after the panic attack, my
Muscles after the workout, my
Scalp after the combing, my
Chest after the heartburn, my
Heart after the argument, my
Ankles after the business casual flats, my
Cheeks after the rage, my
My, my, my, are we used to things burning.
