crows wearing hip ties
caw bleak hypotheticals
in bedridden ears
fill blank hospital room
with musty feathers, farts
frustration. peck at resolve
fray optimism’s thin gauze
probe peaceful numb to pain
feel that? broken toothpick
jabbed in thigh. sucker punch
breathe baby, breathe
each tomorrow disproves
yesterday’s hostile croakings
regrows shred plucked heart

Akua Lezli Hope
