Quiet night, full moon
early morning, outline
of the horizon, escape
me. Let you go
without words. Breathe
you out. Your fingers
unclutch mine. You’re
already gone. Sleepless
I listen to nightly sounds
quiet noise, noisy nothing
thankyous and I’m sorriest
still but not as much anymore
breathe in quiet
breathe in you
and let you go
like leaves that fell
like air I’ve grasped at
like the best tie to my past
