Half the Water

In the black sky

was a black eye

that was white

as snow and death

pealing before me

like a boiled egg

unraveling

feathers and glimmering

star dust–

Quickly does a tear drop

with reflections of our faces

humanity, at last

at fate–the unquenchable

the unthinkable

speaking their last words

like a fallen star–

We forget the galaxies

for they knew us

We love ourselves

for we knew us–

As the silent limbo

of this grey life

takes us

deep

into cold air

of an endless night

breathing a final breath

ever so fresh.
