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
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
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
Author's Note: As unhealthy as unhealthy gets.
