The Cherita, May 2019

Issue: "morning light"


my cheek

rests against
your heart

I listen
to the warm blood
of you


you are

as inscrutable
as snow

I have
never known
how to love you


ship-to-shore

your saltwater voice
anchors me

when I founder
on the rocks
of this sorrow


the birds

have not returned
and yet . . .

these white
unfurling wings
of snowdrops


cornflower sky

I let go
of the birds

inside
my ribcage
and sing
