  • I am broken
    cracked like brittle bones.
    My wings are skewed, twisted,
    and clutched to my chest.

    Bloody feathers stained
    with words, dripping into puddles,
    at my feet, drifting in concentric
    circles. Unread.


    These words I’ve bled
    But never said,
    Caught in my teeth
    Like ribbons, bits of flesh.
    Lost, glittering, at my feet,
    pumping to the rhythm of my

    Words I can’t say
    With a broken tongue, bitten
    In half to keep this silence
