"You have no control who lives, who dies, who tells your story."


with closed eyes and clenched lids

all wet words feel like sonnets;

 

invincible girls hold 

moths in their mouths, drape silver cloth

over untounched faces and freckled cheekbones.

we never knew what to 

say 

 

over the hum of summer and rush of river, 

it's easy to find devotion in declaration. 

love is clever, and so were 

we 

 

build churches and hearths in gentle breaths.

there isn't any harm in caressing hollow hearts

tonight.
