Sky Burial
Ray Corvi

I am giving it my all
despite the dead          silence

a corrupt memory
full of crop circles

& this red thread drawn
through tiny pieces

of what was once
her heart of hearts

Believe in me
I won’t idealize you

I no longer know
if sacrifice is holy

Please bury my shadow—

I want to solve
the darkest problem

the riddle of the sky
