Grey Cup

she squints her eyes
tries to flap the tears away from her ego,
tries to
flap her broken wings back to normal.

she takes an x-ray like medicine,
always wanting to resurrect the dead man
groping inside her ribcage

or wait…

she’s the dead bone inside of him – poking her fossil teeth
& trying to
resurrect herself from the plague, from decay;
from the curse God placed on us –

drinking from the cup Jesus drank,
& living
or rather still struggling, to live a second time.

man don’t teach you how to breathe,
so who does?
