Geography

For Stella

 

Like sutures in a skull 

we have stitched ourselves together

 

two lives in apposition

at the measured pace of bone

 

smooth here

jagged there

 

a mountain range of moments 

tracked in zippered contour lines

 

which have led us, undeniably,

to the scree slope of your end

 

where I practice walks without you

through the rain wet grass

 

sodden

but stilling

 

so when you pass between the blades 

soaked in light, like the morning

 

I will wake to find you

everywhere

 

a geography pierced

and seamless

 

a landscape shot through

with light.
