Ribbons, Volume 11, Number 2, Spring/Summer 2015

Empty and Full


rivulets
of dark blood flowing down
her thin legs
crumple under the weight
of another miscarriage

pingos form
above permafrost
growing larger
the stealthy tumours
of her womanhood

this disease
ravaging her
so slowly
a low-mass star
consumes itself
