the helicopter rises and with their
frantic blades spin light breeze
into a whirlwind until every leaf
is turned and secret veins are
uncovered where upon you stray
from this blood driven path when
since i lost (you), the pulse
stopped— forever i am maimed
and frightening becomes nothing
more than strange inadequacies
leading me into tomorrow with neither
bickering birds nor the anxious
flutter of trees to look forward to
