how passionately i miss

the flight of every cell
thrown up in the air like confetti
glinting in the sunlight.

a fluster of kisses,
the delicate tinkling of silverware
and laughter.

the crack crunch of apple
split between the teeth
like a logger with axe.

the sleepy awakening of 
joy in a midnight dark abandonment-
aware of one.

the splash of water against the chest
and leg-
the shivers!

the pirouette of starbursts
against the pupil
when laughter breaks the body

oh life!
why did you 
abandon me.

or where, perhaps
is the question.

i am limp and pliant.
somewhere inside,
dismay spins uneasily

a bent ballerina
a broken leg-

previous next
