rum & black glass

by Philippa Jane

mama found broken glass
found an empty bottle
found you lost
thought you'd disappeared
and you almost did
wake up wake up! wake up
nothing
so symbolic right there
the way you captured me
captured us
captured the night
in one inaction
the way you're unresponsive,
asleep to it all

your wide eyes
i remember the surprise
remember the silence
remember the way
you said nothing
with your mouth
the way
you absorbed
every verbal blow.
