Heirloom Pendant

                   trench me up, tight boots

                   and tiptoe
                   my barbed wire whisper
                        a dangle of breath
                        blue ribbon parade

                   dance me down, tight boots

                   and decorate
                   my septic stage
                        a heartbeat bullet
                        disbanded battalion

                        swinging on the radio

                                      - Rachel Gilliatt
