Your eyes are still a cliché, Indian Ocean blue
slightly out of focus, whispering of the sea,
Did all the things I prophesize fall true?
Back in December when our bones froze together
and the trees outside the window snapped their
Now our gardens are a heaven’s halo::
wisteria falls like mountain’s secrets,
as you untangle.
I see you walking your pinched faced daughter
and still get woken by your woman’s tantrums,
burrowing through me.
When you’re there, the wall between us radiates
your heat, but I think you never really cared
My body went on stoppage when we split,
as if the last ounce of love had left it dead
I arranged my pain with copper colored youths
watched them dive into me again and again
until it proved exhausting.
Today, I saw you from the window, planted
a kiss, refelt the heat , stroked the air for
particles of guilt;
noticed nothing but the echo of your passing.
