or ecphrasis

. happy couple.

seeps in like marbled water, scum on the tide.

once we touched through holes in blankets,

now we have our own demise.

a comfort in the glass, the daily. mirror.

there is a box unopened,

there was a photo

tied. there was a face set with bandages.

he chose the other one.

two pictures, some of us look the other way.

a while.
