Poem by Natania Rosenfeld

When my ankle broke,
I felt red light crack,
spill forth. I reared
at the sky, my head
eclipsed the sun, and fell
back upon myself
in eddies and swirls.
I begged to be shot,
but they stood still.
I’ll die, I said,
if you leave me on my side.
My nostrils bled foam.
Weeping, they found
the gun at last.
