that limp,
lamp-bitten sound
left warbling on my desk
where the glass
went sick with longing -
how do we start over?
your note said it all

and I could feel the air
forget your name,
coals in the grate
hissing their warning
like a dirge.

you said,
and the robins bare mourning
on their breasts
so beautifully.
your feet always knew

fighting their instincts,
with the purge
of simple lies
crushed under them
like the lost gift
of caring.

I never like these dark moods of yours, especially if I feel you're brooding but I can never deny the genius of your words when they elucidate the emotion so well.
