you can inhabit me
when all else is bare
the wind clearing space
I didn’t know was there
for now I do wish
never to remember why
the sting is relentless
we keep our mouths unmoving and quiet
not even God
would know the hurt that inhabits us
it is the savage essence of
being human
I long to leave
behind in soft
foot fell
leading into
the whirling
snow storm
