Prayer for Frida and Me

Prayer for Frida and Me
If only
I could cast it
off without breaching
the life line, become pure
ivory armatures—
unhungry, unthirsty bones
clattering a disjointed, joyous
dance with an eternal grin.
My empty ribcage
could coop a parakeet, more
chipper than my chipped heart.
Spasms torque
my spine, unarc
my arches.
Flesh a boon too easy
to abrade…
oh, Jesus,
flay
me.
