Within Lungs

within lungs

she wanted his words

mossed inside a jar

safe— so no one

could touch them

she wanted the moon’s laugh

and she needed it’s shadow

she wanted the spurn of

the song from a sparrow

yet grandmother told her

that there was only one way

to breathe all of them in,

writing her lungs

with the moon,

with it’s shadow,

with his words,

with stones, glass, water and fire

where they could dance freely

in and out of her body
