  • Mood:

silence.

a poem written in response to silence. while watching the NCAA finals, while mourning that i won't be at the NCAA hockey finals this weekend. i don't want to talk about it, but you know i will be routing for my brother hardcore from afar.

you've pushed all the sound
out of my mouth.
there is only
the pregnant poise
of silence between my lips.
yours have been still
eclipses of memory.
there is no touch
like the presence,
perfecting the sliver
of the moon
that beams down
a shattered slope.
you bend light with that
gaze, that glimmer
of isotopes casting
shadows on silt.
just bury me now
in my breathlessness.
