Hope

By: Noemi Elliott


Buttoned denim jacket A white canvas,

hiding the hatchet, pink 58 patch sewn

shoulders, bulky and large, onto the bare back.

a size too big On the way

for the frame to the movie

underneath. A portrait of tattered the icy wind brushes

patches cover the elbows against the arms,

ripped to shreds by a silhouette of

the sunlight gleaming glitter marking

through the window as the the sidewalk. Tears

fire draws closer and closer, healed by the universal truth

flames up up up toward for every addict, the drug the

the gallery of- denim-covered heart is hooked on-



hope
