Not a Star

unconscious wish a gurgle fills with phonemes

an out of body siren’s cry dopplers away

defibrillating which sound of silence to make

blue notes effervesce with plucked heart strings

flat line emptying a thought bubble

the hospital door opens moist eyes over pursed lips

over 90 things start looking grave.

bandages trail parts of me left behind

black holes not a star at forgiveness

horizontal events collapse the home work day
