The earth has

turned again


I feel its pull



all night you

lie with me


chasing acid

fields, till dawn.


We share these

dreams of


summer seas,


beaches burning

hot, too hot


on tender feet.


Back then

we juggled


broken hearts,


now we listen

for their beat


expecting breath

to fall apart.


Leaves lie brittle

on the lawn,


your hair so white

I think of


Christmas songs.

your bones snap


the kestrel rises

on the wind


we’re lost in

misplaced memory


trying to sketch

the pathway.
