Kevin  LeMaster


for Marcia 1972-2021

Your spirit emerges from
whiskey amber, broken glass.

the twisted gray metal
frame of your repose

cannot contain your
soul any longer.

those last few minutes,
a mosaic of broken bone

and flesh silhouette the road

like a beautifully injured bird
rising up and flying south

before Winter could arrive, wings
broken over a red blooming sky.
