Little Red Bird of Strength and Courage

 

 Bunkie who christened her Phoenix

presaging a destiny reborn

frenetically effervescent sharer

of trauma and heartache

creative aspirations

concrete floored locked-in yoga hour

 eye-achingly orange couture

scented of incinerated hopes and charred futures

inhospitable steel toilet

songstress of heartrending renditions

canticling frigid life chapter

diva of haunting refrains

echo in incarcerated memory

sensitive soul with insatiable

appetite for self-destruction

torpedoed situational nexus

barring unbearable vulnerability

paths merged then diverged

Little Red Bird of Strength and Courage

wings unshackled

whirled away in heroin’s gale
