No Words

March 5, 2018

You wanted so badly to show me
All of your brain tissue on that couch
Sticky with tears on the television as
It moved in the wind in front of us
You spoke quietly and softly I watched
It and you with no words the leaves
Were carried away by the wind leaving
The gray asphalt gray like your brain
Now in front of me like your tears
I thought it was beautiful and I sat
Silently I knew you were trying so hard
And it kept dancing in front of us
Through the screen that reflected
Your tears and brain on the couch
Between us in the vacuum of space
Which we could enter and not return
Unscathed I watched and tried too
But had no words.
