2 Responses to “fragility”

  1. when the heart breaks,
    the body, unbeknownst
    to the host,
    disconnects, one, two,
    maybe several
    organs at a time. it
    is how on day seven,
    the outer shell awakes
    first and recognizes
    pain along the circuitry,
    the stomach reacts,
    two-thirds liver-less,
    the spinal cord lets
    go a bouquet of
    nerves, and the
    tongue is speechless,
    numb to the touch
