“Fragile Stability”

“Fragile Stability”

Run the bones of this hospital

with the gurneys

everything is skewed

the skewering of warm bones

the garbage we call home

the graves of our blankets

sleet salmon

through violent hips,

feral in all the empress emerald

the bulging of your marrow,

the phantom of your hiss

build me a stone rodeo

for the ghosts

of any use to us emptiness

erase the songs

hope in your underwear drawer

to buy time

under thunder

befallen you

a blanket matched skin to you

with burning insistence

with split-lipped woe.
