Lisa Pelligrini - Two Poems

Amber Premonitions

Bloody pieces of yesterday
pick me up,
shaking off shards
of demons draped in

amber premonitions.
Jumbles of colors wrap
around each other
to create rubber band

balls that
I pray,

not knowing for what.
I adhere to invisible shapes.
Pieces of tomorrow
will triumph.

What Lies Ahead

The crevices around my eyes
take me to places
I might only see
in the kinds of dreams
that render my body limp
when I awake.
The valleys form a maze on my face,
invisible to everyone but me.
It continues down to my throat,
where it constricts my breathing
while teaching me
and warning me
about what lies ahead.
