I Was Here

Yes Sir.

No Sir.

“RUTH WAS HERE”

written in blood

on the wall of the cabin.

She was a wildfire spreading

her wings through fields of wildflowers

And now she was here

with her spine

braided in a straight line

complying with the officer.

Yes sir.

No sir.

“I was here,”

she thought

but she would never let anybody know.
