One,
For my dead heart.
Two,
For my lungs burning for air.
Three,
For my siblings and I.
Four,
Represents death in Japanese culture.
Five,
For my senses.
Six,
For the sense that should have warned me.
Seven,
For the mystical side.
Eight,
For infinity.
Nine,
For the lives of my cat.
Ten,
For the count down.
Eleven,
For the volume level of my screams.
Twelve,
For the witching hour.
Thirteen,
For the number of wraps on this noose.
My feet leave their perch.
The rook cries.
