Love Letters from Across a Distance
Had a dream there was a light in her hair
and she was laughing at a mystery naked
by the window and she became
like the moon.
In the morning, she hung so heavily
against the space where my soul stirs.
Had she been here, i swear i would have held her
with every measure of
trust and desperation.
November morning motionless
but for blackbirds in a grey sky.
November morning cold
with the smoky city evaporating.
in my backyard
like the quiet
of afterwards and afterthoughts.
i am heavy
for the part of me
that has dissolved
in a sleepless night.
i sip my tea
and pray without words.
i pray for the visible and the invisible.
i pray for resolutions to pull back my eyelids
and fresh delusions to pull them closed again.
i pray for a love
which is tender and surrendered and strange.
