To A Friend on the Occasion of His Accident

Don’t tell me you didn’t think about it

as, hungry for life, you shifted Alpine snows,

the sky following you,

sun bronzing your face.

. . . And when, just walking along in Milan,

your heel caught the cobbles and your knee gave way . . .

–Excerpt from “To A Friend on the Occasion of His Accident” in Hanging Like Hope on the Equinox by Donna Pucciani (Virtual Artists Collective, Chicago 2013). First published in Willow Review.
