Aftermath/Lifetimes

by Marisa Siegel

Pulled, flat out stretched     unbroken
Misshapen
Text that breathes     which stifle
Smothers
Overpower and overwhelm
Folded flower

Broken, a fix     word that fixes

A substantial, substitution
Smoothed
Smolder and ash      flipped
For what was worth      fraught,
Tenuous knots
Or solution, arithmetic
