Paper Birds – Holly Rene Hunter

beautiful writing from Holly Rene Hunter on Free Verse Revoltuion


I’ve unfolded us like origami

Ripped  open  our borders, dissected the dark corners of secrets

forced  them into light to mourn like hollow bones of birds.

I have renamed us where every memory is not an ache beneath my ribs

and every  thought is not an assault on the dead.

My heart is the flush of peony, the color of healing scars.
