sleep, and other secrets
by Brynn Dizack
your subtle beauty
relates most closely
to the perfect topography
serrated knives draw across
the counterpane of a new tub of
where did you come from?
has the absence of you
been what makes the dry roads so bleached in winter,
all these years?
i have always wondered:
what causes this chalksprawl phenomenon?
is it the liquid salt? unyielding cold?
or was it the weight of waiting
for some creature who could
without losing herself?

This is gorgeous... And I kind of feel the bleached roads thing inherently; it just felt right when I read it. Maybe my mind's wandered there too. Truly a wonderful piece, little bird.
