my first mine

postpartum

postpartum, i limp
out of the raging waters
the love lake full of blood,
the crater where my heart
once learned to grow

shards of bone pierce
through my purpled skin,
my lungs deflated now
the party is over

i do not see the vultures
but i feel them watching

i see the atrophy
devouring my fingers
but when i try to scream
my mouth is full of dirt
and i choke

when the winged things finally
land on my sagging shoulders
scab-skinned and repulsive
there is nothing left
for me to say

so they eat me alive
