body as bad omen, pray & plead for absolution
in the intervals. I am heartbreak, an
eclipse, divining rod.
for devastation. born as electricity,
flickers bend &
break & bargain
hands turned holy,
an offering, distraction for diffusion,
light as antonym for ache.
Amy Jarvis majors in creative writing and originally hails from Rhode Island. She’s a poet, a lover of light, and a hopeless romantic, although not necessarily in that order.
