Dear abandoned blog, Medium profile and Facebook page,
this is a message
to tell you that I did not die.

I gave birth 12 months, 1 week,
and 6 days ago.

I have let my stats drop
and grow wild
to run after a comet.

It burst out of my lower belly, enormous,
covered in blood,
a tuft of white-blond hair
sticking out spectacularly at its head.

I ran after it, with pads
stuffed inside my hospital underwear,
and have been following it
since then.

Dear camera, portfolios
and Instagram account,
this is an apology.

You are now
malfunctioning, dusty
and hacked. …
