I Am a Cadaver

I am a cadaver
Quickened by hope
A windstorm of love
Rattles my bone cage
Jolts me alive – happy, alive
Almost human
So much to give
I am a blazing beam of loving light
One chance, one lightning bolt
Hit or miss
Hit, and I live forever
Miss, and all hope disperses
Like scattered blackbirds
Whose caws fade away
A cadaver no more
Can mist be quickened?
Can hope form me into love?
Will I ever know what it’s like
To be made real?
