dramatic thought/untitled sketch

carry me to your chagrin
ferry me
dead weight eyes
cause (effect) a stirring
every thing lost

to crows kneeling sideways
against the snow
pecking bones
bare branched homes
sketching gestures to the sky

broken contour
too thick laid on its side
scratching a hole in memory
picking out the stones

praising all great mothers
wishing for the womb
sacrifice, arms
unaided cleft chest
pressed against safety

deft we deliver silence
crossed legs
hanging breath
our own untimely living deaths
