IN MEMORY OF
Medicine heated my veins like a dragon,
Serpent tubes silenced my cry,
God and Machine clashed in a tug-of-war,
And I fought, hanging in the balance.
Penned by a poet in love,
Who found wonder in the suck of a pacifier,
And in labored breaths eased by a touch,
And in bittersweet good-byes.
Delicate and brief,
The flutter of my kick in the womb,
The graceful curve of my tiny fingers,
The quiet whisper of my last breath.
Spare moments holding rich purpose,
Painting the world in surprising new lights,
Leaving those around me
