She is instilled into everyday life.
are her pale bruised thighs
and her starry eyes
are embedded among it.
The wind reminds me of her slumber,
for in its whistle I hear her murmur
and snore and toss and talk softly to me.
How it would soothe me.
In these moments, I forget
I indulge in the past,
remembering the love I once had
