The Latest

~ By Courtesy of Others ~




Above the heart, the vessel beats,
Like a root, like a limb
Of axe-struck wood. The weary heart -
Waters red with awful wisdom -
Struggles on, slow, defeated.

Birds of grief, blue as ravens,
Batter against the breast-cage walls.
Sometimes one - stronger, more desperate -
Seizes the breath and bursts the throatlock.
Wings unfurling, free, uncertain,
She opens to infinite sky.


Š 1997 Ann Grķa Sheffield
