Sarah Rosenthal - Sonnet

If joints

swell and limbs

wither, if you've been

rejected before

the cup arrived,

if a left

is made, if bedlam

comes from


buildings will weep for lost siblings.

kohl-circled eyes will stare above dusty cheeks.

the river water will resemble river water

but only under a certain sun.

a softened body will learn to tell time.

[from Blazevox]
