Emergency


Bent crooked

 Over a fading effacement  

Locked elbows 

Tensed sinew 

Knotted ankles 

Pristine mechanical movements 

Vile stench of trauma 

Compressing Hopelessly, compressing

 Up 

Down

Up 

Down 

Life flowing 

Through ruddy fingers 

Into a deep blue emptiness 

A gasping moment 

Life or Death . 

The End
