*

Step by step half marble
half backing away
and though the struggle was fierce
this graveyard still depends on you
pulling it closer the way silence
has always followed
and went on from there
–you’re dragged by hillsides
not yet flowers, not yet thrown
helplessly lifting your hands
without thinking
or their darkness.
