time

fingers interweave
in mutual remembrance:
wordless farewells
before you disappear
into the flecks
of another
relentless
dawn

I sprawl:
trace contours
still etched
on the mattress,
clutch crumpled sheets
to my face,
devour all signs
of your
presence,
fast-fading

I curl
embryo-like,
try to fill
emptiness
where my arms
possessed you
steered you
through pangs
of whimpering
rebirth

silence

a.c. burps:
chill air
envelopes me
as i lie
awake;
resentful of
time
that brings
and
then
takes away

Listen to this poem
