This Is Paralyzed

Here is the tender chest of my abandoned message
– its broken lungs begging to breathe, keeping me up at night
with their perpetual fluttering, gasping, and gulping – God!
Here is the tender chest of my abandoned body;
the arms and legs of loneliness; the stomach where it all
dissolves; here is the woman, aching.
