~compunction

 

 

it was almost too late
to cancel the punctuation
and drain the marrow

de-bone a disguised tongue
bittered by camphor and cloves

an unspoken apology settles
farther than deep, deeper than far

in this way daffodils choose to remember
a complicated spring

like the alliteration of a dying
wind
