How did I watch 
Her soft hands 
pull his stiff body close
to dress his purple skin


Still cold from the hospital fridge 


How did I watch 
Her face split with horror
when she realized his arms
would not bend

Not even 
For his mother 

 

SARAH currently lives and works in Edmonds, Washington. She would describe herself as painfully shy by nature but has learned to overcome it by simply pretending not to be. She says it mostly works unless it doesn’t. When she’s not hanging out with her sisters, she enjoys running, eating, reading, taking pictures and staying up too late.
