while I wait
for you to return
the clock ticks —
why have I never noticed
how loud it is?

spring morning
your call arrives too late
for last rites —
still I hold the phone up
in case, just in case . . .

my fingers
trace the scar
along your sternum
across the heart
that wasn't yours

emperor moth
fluttering at the window
I'd swap places
if you'd lend me your wings
that I might fly to her

one by one
black-naped monarchs unfold
their wings . . .
on this wintry night
why do they enter my dream?
