    Green Light

    A car slams into my bike
    Splintering bone
    Shattering glass
    I snap clavicles of jokes;
    You know, the rib cracking kind
    'Oh, I'm so glad you ran into me'
    It dulls the pain
    The out of body trauma
    On a corner
    Some crossroad I'm hurtling past
    Way too fast.

    Hi, Delta

    Itīs been ages!
    Hope you are fine
    and that the story
    of your poem
    is invented.

    who am I but a stitch in time
    what if I were to bare my soul
    would you see me origami

    so deep and honest
    fragile is not the word!
    fast healing is a must.
    it may never try
    but when it does it sigh
    it is just that
    good
    it fly
