teen suicide
whispers through
the school
now everyone
knows her name

  I would give you
the breeze tonight
its sage-like perfume
in moonlight
beauty instead of grief

    reading your poems
I relive your trauma
while I am sleeping …
awake with an aching jaw
and my pencil out of joint

space Elizabeth Howard - USA

it was always there
beneath your every word
your every gesture

  at the door of midnight
light of a silver moon
sound of distant rain
a poem upon
the river

    waking at two
with a song in my soul …
I find you
hiding in shadows
of graces and quavers
