those with wings

ladybirds bleed from her heart
hundreds of them morass inside her chest

their flecked wings start to stir
and readies themselves for take-off

her heart has no choice
it clings to the ladybirds' rising legs

nothing can stop the flight of her heart
and the hundred wings

her sternum breaks open
and her rib cage cracks and splinters

those with wings
will fly free
