Silent to my blood.

silent to my blood
along the bone garden

I have known the
women, living and dead,
eyes seized the one moon,
(a ghost sleeps)

in my body
dissociating a star at my spring bones
my garden, my home
a sparse death in my hair
the wind.

  1. Physical poetry, gardens illuminated by haunting specters of the moon (oddly threatening here), and a macabre tension between movement and breaking. Once again, you craft an elegant window into your mind’s working. It is good to see you back to your style.

      1. Well I’m terribly embarrassed to have mistaken the timeline, but a good poem is timeless. I won’t retract a single compliment!
