wednesday and the emergency room.

life does not live here
it is only measured
with hands that mark
the seconds in silence
machines that weigh
the beating heart.
life cannot live here.

life lives deep in veins
pounding red with tides
and memory
rank with sacred purpose.
life lives on egret wings
lifting light to the sky
in the darkening evenings
of autumn.
