Highland Mary | Polaroid Epitaphs

Highland Mary

I fell off the wall
when plaster gave way to the
weight of one-thousand prayers hanging
on a single nail.

A certain half-cracked silence floated over
Highland like soft piano keys tapping
as the glass tore itself apart from the frame.

New little symphonic shards projected
themselves across the floor,
crooked and stubborn.

I fell off the wall
when plaster gave way to the
vibration of so many voices resonating
on one thin wire.

I fell off the wall
when you forgot to
push me straight.

I fell of the wall
despite your attempts
to battle

I fell off the wall
and cut your foot.

    So shocking and dramatic.. and yet so very subtle!
