And This Is Why


Send a picture of the sun

this new moon

Even as blood moves eggs

toward tubes

 

Warm these walls

Even as pain grips

 

Light this room

As if even halogen

had no wattage

as strong

 

Burn this skin

as if there were less pigment

 

make the layers

peel away down

to this blood

same as yours
