vollmond

a sob lifts
a door closes
gripping a crumbling wall
faster than fast can be
they slip through each other
which foot first?
they slip into each other?
Which chin first?
we run from
that thing
that in the end
drowns us in
our own ideas
of how it should have been.
why wear the goggles
when you wear such a heavy coat?
ophelia blushes
with purple lips slain
according to your doctrine
of how it should go.
i cannot see you.
all this water
running through my hair
when all i really need is a carrot.

Saranac Lake, NY two years ago. We went for a camping trip for Coulmbus Day weekend and every time this weekend comes around, something else is in the way of returning. It was so pretty : )
