In a Dream You saw a Way to Survive by Clementine Von Radics
but I remember
I remember everything
I was a bird before this
A graveyard
Of the unburied
My healing is ugly
My edges cracked and uninspiring
But still, they are my edges
Still, I am healing
Isn’t that itself a song?
A chorus of rage and gentle.
