Footprints

by Anna Ruiz


Some folks want footnotes
with my poems
points of reference
declarations of knowledge
stored in some ruined building.
I can only glance
backward
over my left shoulder
drag my broken wings
across these poems to myself
drown out the cry
of Kafka walking on insect feet,
mandibles chewing my Soul
like blades of grass.
