the rain recites
tenderness in
hidden places –
one, two,
with you

in the shadows, we

forty-three hours have

forty-three hours have
passed since we lost you. i hide
the details
from my-

edges for fear of falling

perhaps i spread my
fingers just a little when
i am thinking of
you
and me

there can be an

unknown, hiding
my face
from the face of
it, without resisting
a peek

a handful of hours

a handful of hours
before sunrise,
your thumb
has discovered
the outer
corners of my

it’s not working, this pretense.

it’s not working, this pretense.
i fire off missives to the regions
of my body that are still slow,
hiding from the signs, as though

as the message cannot
arrive

whispers in the blood-
stream that sound like
fish or cut bait.

like cauterizing a wound
