How we write


How we write

Is steps through hushing leaves, each footfall tempered
By the slowly sifting knowledge that each has passed
Its zenith, this  leaning on a moment where  breaths
Are  caesurae dividing the daylight until night falls
Sometimes rain spatters the pages, the spreading words
Translating tears upon the papery ground
A meaning slips into my pocket like your  big hand
Warming my thigh; as though the connection
Of  syllables is a sublime erotic contemplation
Of this you will know nothing
cratching your name again, again
Inking a useless stone.
