she tells me the story of him

by Brynn Dizack

...she turns to one side, already elbow deep in sleep



this is another year.
we sit
in the kitchen,
(that is, me,
and the jars,
a bowl of clementines on the table,
crumb carpets,
and a half-full glass of
water.)

mail slides through the slot, and
slaps the floorboards.

we are so susceptible to guilt,
so apt to unravel.

our war is the war of leaking faucets
&& the moan of radiator pipes;
of three or four unfinished novels on the bedside table.

this morning is putting on airs.
the light is dim;
irate crows in the yard,
a lawnmower somewhere up the street.

we still have so much to learn.

"our war is the war of leaking faucets && the moan of radiator pipes; of three or four unfinished novels on the bedside table."--I really, really like that man. So much great imagery in this whole thing.
