One Year Ago Today: Origami

I cannot
be broken
twice
but life is
doing its
damn best
to bend me
fold me
into painful
sharp
origami shapes

 

crane
butterfly
swan
turtle
frog
dragon

over and over
deep creases form
in my skin
my muscles twist
bones scream
heart aches from compression
soul cries mercy
as I contort
become unrecognizable
fall to the ground
like crumpled paper
