Vespers (30)

daughter embellishes the brittle mother
night amounts to branches
that insist upon these windows
in succession

if a conversation were split open
part of it would equal
monologic breath transisting
toward thought also lifted

speaking acts upon the silence
with another in the room
somewhere a world enclosed
in being slips into a deeper world

this is how one reaches
to encompass the approaching
place of cool moist
time of heart when heat is left behind
