Poem -

FIRST TO LAST

Shuddering
brave little fighter
first to last
this breath inside
cling tattoo to me
live inside
last tiny breath

what is this howling wolf
its sorrow burns
frozen time

marble grey against the rose
hold the push
forced in tightness
last tiny breath

counted numbers
misted glass screens
no frosted expelled
condensation released
numbers counted
the last-this ending
last tiny breath

expressed from flesh
crawling skin
I break bone
I break vessel
I break
I break
last tiny breath

explain weeping
hollow deep grief
angry tempest wreck
weight-age-numbers
last counted
last tiny breath

LAST
THE VERY LAST TINY BREATH
