CELESTE HEALEY


BC, Canada / Aspiring Writer
I'm currently in self-isolation at a ski resort in Canada, where I have been working for the winter. Our resort has shut, but we are allowed to live on-site until it reopens. We spend our isolation days hiking the snow-capped mountains, reading, painting etc.


I am at a friend's house in their bathroom. I am looking in the mirror, and I can see my face extremely clearly, but it is melting like it does when I am on shrooms. My freckles, usually quite faint, are large — large enough to overtake my face, and my pupils seem to have overtaken my brown irises entirely. Inside my pupils, I can see my own face a thousand times over, mouth open and screaming soundlessly.
