All Things Beautiful

For Alyssa Smith, a dancer and dear friend.

Bind a back
Bind a brain
Break a body
Blinding pain
Bury roots of a friendship
In bandages we became
partners of sorrow
Felt in bone’s marrow
Brought to our knees
In prayers and in pleas
Bound in our brittleness
To be better we breathe
