The Affliction

This defunct wing of hope
is an affliction I cannot surrender
so I walk carrying
two broken organs

Then I slipped into a crack
with all the bygones and
the forgotten
but you weren’t there

I stayed a little longer
nursing my wounds and
flapping my broken wings
but to no avail

And in this parcel of the night
I capitulate the gift of flight
and incarcerate myself
inside two broken wings
