untitled (26)

by Brynn Dizack

what an impossible sound:
our collective death.

seaglass gray, or
milky-white, your
limbs in the dark,
(mottled with the
blue-black of contact)

most nights i
put my hands on you
until you can no longer speak,,
until all your sounds are buried
in the snowdrifts of your breathing.

oh,, in
these surefooted days without water,
i am quiet,,
quieter than sleep,
or snow,

or the anticipation of failure--

That ending has such a beautiful, haunting refrain to it. Loved the whole thing.

I am w/ Gabe. The ending is so perfect for the piece as a whole-- and what a whole! Breathtaking, little bird.
