But Not Today
I have no heart today.
I think I have lost it somewhere along the way
From yesterday to today.
I am wrong
It's not gone
It's still here
I know this because it aches
If my chest were truly empty
It would not ache.
I should get up now
Get up and rejoin the war
On this battlefield
On this battleground.
I should and I will
I will get up again
But not today
Maybe tomorrow I will get up off the ground
As far as my knees.
I should get on my knees
But not today
They Have Returned
They have returned
I thought they had left
I thought they'd gone for good
and taken their darkness with them.
But that murder of crows
more now than ever before
are gathering and landing
in the vase-shaped tree across the street
