tomorrow we will stare

tomorrow we will stare
loss in the face with one-
coats of fatigue, a mouthful
of twigs tinged with
grief, rootlets shaken
from comfort, three or four
wistful feathers, and a found
. like birds, we have
increased our chances of
survival by camouflaging
our heavy hearts

    Another strong poetic bouquet of grief, splayed out fetchingly
    with fresh imagery, and imaginative wordsmithing. I like this one.
