“She was spirited and slight,
had her soul on her sleeve that night
and I envied her ability
to place one word after another
join them all up
and sing of her luminous darkness.
She’s smaller then I’d remembered her
shrunken somehow,
no future left in her indolent eyes.
Just a jangling of broken instruments,
broken melodies,
broken bones.”
