Leap to the table
I cannot hear you
In breathing I am
Filled by you
I carry your favorite sofa
Down your old
Apartment steps
In Mt. Airy.

Your mom collects your
Brother in her arms
Says farewell to the
Only home you knew
Before you danced
Into my arms
Into my lungs
Still in the city
A whisper shouted down
By fireflies

  1. I love this.
    Possibly because I get to be a mommy in it.
    Also because it's awesome.
