absence recast


(from what we see when we read, mendelsund)

a blurry omission.

absence recast

as agency.

[for she or me?]


redacted. re-crafted.

in tenacity [or

blind obstinacy].

off kilter-ed, but

balancing [barely].

fled fragility.

embraced uncharted.


cloaking embodied

residue of

fragments of

memories of


reduced to pixels.

no hard copy or

soft teddy bear or

contact or try. no,

no nothing. no

matter. no

complaint, no

need. no

wishing, no


no want.

except on

days like

these when

she asks.
