family

in the chilled dampness

of the shadowed up-room,

i sat atop warped boards with you

quite still.

 

i watched your fingers,

marrow-hued and long,

as they stroked framed paper faces

and shook.

 

glass captured phantoms

blurred- melted from wet.

drowned by bedewed, lymphatic ink,

they wept.

 

your same-sogged eyes moved,

focusing on mine,

while a smile rivered your mouth.

a sigh.
