Found Poetry 208


certain cutting hands
eyeing a stretched belly
the mother drips the baby in the water
I caught the red stench of the queen
under the tilted yellow sparks in the sky
it had a smile like a rock
they put its tears in the bank
years passed like birds overhead
and this child with silver hair
and so many obstacles
stitched the world back together
