Dormant laughter

March 23, 2015



Last night

through slumber fog

and months of absence

you appeared, one hand

held by Morpheus

the other hand occupied

with moving your grave

to a more pleasing location


and you laughed

that husky, breathless

laugh with lucent eyes

like sweet wrappers, stannic

staring out at the world

as if it were still yours

to walk


and I awoke

breathless myself

your mirth still jangling

through the gelatinous stillness

of the night

and I cried


because it was a sign

that I hadn’t forgotten


it was a sign


that though the months

had clattered against us

corroding your everyday impact

the truth of you remained:


you once had been.
