drapery — a tiny poem for April


conceal the temple’s secrets

lostlace in the march of time




prometheans, silenced

by chokeholds


we watch,

lived lifetimes

the agony of birth/death

the mourners at the gates


stories we never told you emerge

and your arms embrace us

  1. I raad you and I don’t mourn. I don’t. Just in the middle of tears too. Just an inch away from the unspeakable. So. You didn’t write this fir ne. But I took it that way.
