TWO NEWLY DISCOVERED POEMS

“Your Mother Won’t Last the Night” 

Insidious and relentless

Blood disgorged through tubes

Recirculates the leftover blood in her frail body.
Our grief hemorrhages into outrage

Stilled by crushed remembrance.

 

Regret

Aimless and ashen,

Deprived of her daughter,

She curses the desiccated, desecrated hours.
