Post-Operative: Night

The night opens before me

like a giant flower, waiting.

I dread the dark.

You will try to stand up in a dream,

lose your balance,

crumple to the floor . . .

–Excerpt from “Post-Operative: Night” in Hanging Like Hope on the Equinox by Donna Pucciani (Virtual Artists Collective, Chicago 2013). First published in The Kerf.
