Hidden Legacy Poetry


Broken German Wings

Broken Wings

Hail Mary
I’ve cupped my palms
So you could sip
You spit on my church shoes
With charcoal debris
Flying out your chest

Full of Grace
Like pilots
Using cockpits
As compartment confessionals
prayer can’t land sadness
The dead don’t scream as loud
As the panicked

Pray for us sinners
In our last hour of death
gnawed at ankles
until they snapped
then clocked timers
on track speed
you bleed secrets
asked others to guess
this plane was not your game show
ratings tanked

To the last glimpses
Of each passenger
Whose children will
Think you blinked
Forgot to re-open
