The Coil


Poem by Kevin M. Hibshman

Sorrow in the face
of the wafer-thin girl.
child-bone borne through the
heart and arteries of bedlam to
be suspended in deathless flight.
she got the world figured out,
all right.

KEVIN M. HIBSHMAN edited his own poetry magazine, Fearless, for nearly 20 years, as it transformed from print zine to eZine. Over the past two decades, Kevin has released many chapbooks and broadsides, and his poems, reviews, and collages have been published in numerous magazines worldwide. Find him on Facebook.
