Cold water lashed tense hands - for many years she washed them again and again. Cold water and bleach: its enzymes and molecules ready to attack, hydrogen peroxyde tires skin and eyes hurt.
Chronic pain, dissatisfaction, tense face. Mitochondrial fatigue, exhaustion that constricts her ribs, her world is in a nutcracker, her burning head bursts ---
Until she sat on a stool for many long nights, when there was white fog outside the grey place and a floor inside of pale dead skin, waiting...
waiting for the hurt to peel off.
Then one day I saw her reappear, undressed in white.
