Miracles and Sorrows – a poem by Victoria Twomey

Miracles and Sorrows

poor death, so bored, so certain
unable to close his gaping jaw

waiting a lifetime 
with his one-trick mouth

while we cling to our delicate thread
dangling for a moment in sanctified light
mortals swinging from miracles to sorrows
and back again
