Fractured Promise

Sarah falls
like the half-night

turned chorus of crows
as they lose their way

beyond the fragile
promise of morning,

past weeks
without fractured bones.

Jade Riordan’s poetry has appeared in Cordite Poetry Review, CV2, Noble / Gas Qtrly, Outrageous Fortune, Room, and elsewhere. She lives north of Canada’s 60th parallel and volunteers as a selection committee member (poetry reader) with Bywords.
