Her name for it is…

well, she’s not quite sure but

it’s crimson or maroon, and

some days tinged with envy

spines around the edges.

And the relentless questions

that she can’t seem to

answer live most
deeply in the night.  Sometimes,

her baby breath shifts to yelps,
she pants like the wounded
pup she dreads seeing
in her dreams. He’s stranded,
limping, his limpid gentle eyes
begging to be rescued. She

rushes out only to be
struck herself; her fractured
bones mingling with his.
