Disenthrall – Teresa K. Miller

When would each shattered knuckle
reform and tuck away its denser

secret. When at last you became
a gutter luring water from the door.

When you rose, a skin boat in the ice floe.
The pinnacle a foothill, the trumpets heralding

fermata, muffled crow.
Teresa K Miller
