who have lost and found their way

state lines, each one still holding
onto a piece of

you, despite the rattling
of wings, life’s uncertainty

towards the edge

it’s no small thing

it’s no small thing –
observing that the
heart must
break. the pieces
have already

and rotating this
recent piece
in both hands –
it’s no small thing
