Love and Gravedigging

by Megan Guimbellot

We've never been strangers,
I've known you since birth// from the starlight filling our pores
We are easy

River over rock/ we go forward
and whirlpool
Our paths dip and sink
glisten in the sun, blinding
until your outline
and my outline
and merge// become one with each other// with the blue sky backdrop of years gone by

going forward

how can we be separate// like tangles of moss we are caught together bending in the breeze, huddling for warmth

Don't let me go

Let the years make us unshakable/ unspeakable/ unearthly
Let's dig this grave together, shaking dirt off of our backs
brush it from my hair
and climb in.

Let's fold this earth around us until my rotted lungs and yours breathe together
and out.

Always love seeing your name in the recent poetry section. Stunning once again.
