artist with worried sister

she stands up
among her broken people

counting time on fingers
bent with it

her plane was a bed
contrived of shadows

full of salt wound in sheeting
now in shreds

like all ends of things
orange energy lifting her

into urgencies clanging yellow
hurrying her forward

away from the sister
who's always one step behind

(Bloodlotus magazine)
