Mercy Mildly

I tied a knot

in my chest

it tightens

as day passes

and loosens

again by night

never mind

constant aches

groaning ribs

what follows

hard to swallow

the knowledge

of imperfect

impersonation

of a perfect

presentation

of personality

and movement

into it’s likeness

quiet in mourning

and livid by sight

rage long

and mercy mildly

basking in

cold starlight
