July 4, 2012


The plural of broken
In whispered beats
And chambered red
Wallpapered last words
Burnt quaking walls
Calcium edges bleeding shards
All those mornings
Frost on the inside windows
That empty space between sheets
Stoking a fire made bitter cold
Knotted silences
Sky brewed
Every drop sadder than before
Simply every night
Her wrists wrung dry
Waiting for the fill
Her fragile shell
More than once
