where do we put?

[ebook_store ebook_id=”471″]            where do we put?

where do we put
the ones who
have left us?

what space
what fields
within us do
they need?

to farm them
out in dream
a stage
appearance
unannounced
coming back to
touch us in
sleep is that
enough?

to pray
for a sky to
receive them
in light like
shattered
rainbows
the aurorae
southern
northern
lights about
their shoulders
does that
soothe them?

is a memory
that catches you
like a prick
on a needle
doing one thing
and another thing
happens
is that all
the price they
ask for
having
left
us
?

wherever
it be
on that
broadening shelf
they become
more and
many.

  1. Thank you, gentlemen! Indeed, Marco, one from the old days (mostly all I’m posting it seems, but I miss not seeing them up and about out there somewhere waiting to be read, as when they were up on the old site for two or three years).
