so you wonder how much longer

it should take. as if grief could be

quantified, much less timed.


what comes after takes its place. you realize

only after it has settled in. you are uneasy,

hesitating, but who are you


without your fears, without your loss? you

are made up of hollow cells, clumped together

because they could not possibly bear parting. this,


on the other hand, imposes. pervades. deny all

you must but escape remains a word stripped

of possibilities. deny all you can, but don’t deny


entry. bear the weight, for it is an elegy for

darkness. what is desire without urgency.  light, after all

does not peek and creep. it explodes, an ambush into morning.




for that night and the morning it morphed into.
