Crowbar



Loose this from her chest
and you may find something un
-slatted, spattered over all her quest
-ions, all her want. Something small and in
-significant, really, something no one else might
see. Is it really so foreign, feathered, this cold held
hope in tattered hands? Is it really so hard to un
-shake her fists at the sky, open them wide
and empty them for greater things?
If she sings in sorrow, will the
sparrow join her sigh?

  1. This singsscreamssighs straight from the heart. Wow, De. I ♥ this.

  2. Love the shape – sort of like a crowbar!
    “cold held / hope” wow. And the final line. This is really wonderful – so much angst expressed so well. As usual I love your ingenious line breaks. “Quest / ions” really good. I am in awe!
