Poetry from The Well

Remember

Between two flaps I’ll live

In the spaces beneath

Thirsty ink

 

Eyes sweep over

Pages, some looking,

And some seeing

 

Meanwhile, planets tumble

Farther into black space,

Away from one another

 

As my static world matures

To crisp sepia, oily fingertips

Blurring the scenes

 

To your child’s bedside

Table I’ll migrate, when she

Needs a friend

 

As badly you did, when you

Dripped snot and tears

All over the words that

 

Crystallized atop

My own snot and tears

And oily fingertips
