.

She’d lost a handle on her young life

so much so

the highlight of her hospital liquid diet

was a syringe of runny, Red No. 4 gelatin

through the slightest parting of her (self-)abused body’s mouthpiece

slipping effortlessly as she did through justice’s cracks

between us

There was no jiggle

and

no further room for error

Redemption maybe always

once hour, Father was obeyed

This day
