bi_janus Posted February 11, 2012 Report Share Posted February 11, 2012 Between Florida and the Cascades, Eli Bi_janus How does a man compete with a place? What’s the calculus of the hurricane and the volcano? Brief reunions, twice a year, would haul us across the rasp endlessly, keeping the wounds weeping red wolf tears until our wolves shriveled. Intimates reduced to acquaintance, what would our talks encompass— the river of longing between the hearts, worse, our work, a holiday mimeograph? Eli, you saved me for Ann, and I you for Justine. We kept the cake, eating it, too, sating the wolf’s hunger. Are we longtime companions, whispered to the world now in encrypted obituary code? Vivimos dia por dia. Email is no touch, yet I look for yours every day, and, as to touch, none is more than less. We would not bear thirty more goodbyes, thirty more last times. Quote Link to comment
