Random Poem:

my window will not shut

like moments of my smile
it is broken.
rivulets of freezing air
cut a path
through the one fault
in my glass armor.
each tremble of the clock's second hand
vibrates through my brittle bones,
hoping that my joints will hold
each other and not let go,
like souls seeking body heat and company.
