Risk

Snowfall changes everything.

Safer to be in the sky’s dark womb,

a dying star nestled in cold beyond comprehension,

than to become a single flake

among thousands more . . .

–Excerpt from “Risk” in Edges by Donna Pucciani (Purple Flag, Chicago 2016). First published in Journal of the American Medical Association.
