The Broken Latch: A Rengay with Aubrie Cox

The Broken Latch
Aubrie Cox & Kirsten Cliff

rain ripples
across my skin

finally home
I sink into tears

sunlight slips
between the bedroom
blind slats

no moon
my sleepless night
of silent prayers

thoughts tangled
in the thickening fog

lost butterfly
the broken latch
on this pill box

This rengay was written from our shared experience of living with the chronic illness Fibromyalgia.
