Sunlight swells into buildings

rolls over my feet

gets trapped under my soles

At this moment

there is nothing more to say


When you rose to leave

your skirt

made the sound of a bird

caught in my hands


In the distance your silhouette

dark, then gray, then

birds landing on a statue

make the sound of your skirt leaving


Overhead a low jet noise

I say something

but cannot hear myself

and across the table

your chair

is the emptiness left behind


from my sixth book-length manuscript
