death is an irritant

death is an irritant
triggering our bodies to
begin its slow defense –

loneliness
of our shells
can we learn to
seal off injury,
adapt, try
for anything
resembling a pearl

the calendar marks
the days i do not
phone, each
blank page a soft
pearl to be
polished for a
longing that can
dissolve with
the right amount
of time
and vinegar
