who lights up
my sky,
but my fingers
will never
reach her.

I Become Dumb

You ask me,
But I cannot say.

Words scatter
Thoughts disperse
I cannot grasp them,
Slipping through my fingers
Intangible as ghosts.

You ask me,

Sand sifting through grasping fingers.
I reach for a moment, but it slips away.
How did I get here?

As Bones

Driftwood, bleached bone white.
Branches stark against the sand.
Gnarled fingers reach.
