Broken wings

She

Hasn’t written for a while

Empty sheets on an empty canvas

Stars gazing

Moons blowing

And an insidious ache of dark man’s channels echoe through

A bone has been broken now

Her right wing snapped in two

Clavicles represent power

Like windchimes echoe the moon

I’m sorry

She whispers alive

Her mother resembling higher graces

The starving child forever adored

Fuck

Her arm is snapped

It is her feeling arm

Her power arm

Her ace of spades

The one who presents magic upon dawnings and evermores

Fuck she gets up from her bike

On her way for a swim

In crashing waves out to the jetty of despair she paddled and puffed every morning

Her daily serenade

Kept her alive

Grateful

Wondering

Alive

Thirsty

Fuck. She has to get in the water.

To the water

Shaking trembling in shock

But the arm.

The clavicle the scapula lay hanging midspace
She’d done it this time. Again.

First at eight in a car accident

Then at forty four off a fucking bike

Emergency wards

Scans

Pulling prodding a complete fracture

At least the right arm

That controls all

Healing

Stop

Rest

Healing

Push pull

Energy wind people carers non carers

Her wing is plucked now

She has to nurse her

To my chest

My heart

Till she knits

Its my curing arm

My power arm

What can she do….

Dearly beloveds

We are gathered here today

To get through
This

Thing

Called life

Mother calls it despair

Father calls it weakness

Brother calls it luck
Bend don’t break

The wind whispers

Surf don’t swallow

The ocean beckons

Love

Do not harden

Love

Do not harden
No matter what

Here she goes

Again

Just

Keep

Walking
Forwards
