Poetry by February Grace

Mixed State

Uncross my wires
there’s no one at the

and shadows
once they’re
tripped

Speak faster now
I cannot understand you
your world turns
much too cold
for this
fevered mind

Extremes may batter me
but there’s a hellscape in between
please don’t leave me here
alone
like this
mixed

 

Broken

Limbs stiff, joints frozen
made of concrete lined with lead
broken dolls can’t dance
