you see?

i don’t

think our

napkins

are folded

at the

same

table

after all.

 

do you want me

to tell you

more?

do you want me

to tell you how her pupils

widened

with the dark shock

of months long

anticipation

expectation?

For so long it was obvious

to us

all.

How it would finally end.

We tied

knots

on knots

on knots.

We never,

none of us three,

ever,

thought

of the

total

 breaking strain

we might

exert between

us…

A multitude of sins

 multifarious and too late despairs

fanning behind our current path.

The way ahead

is hinted at

but these seeds scattered

behind us

form a clearly visible backwards trail.

This trail,

it marks our progress,

you can follow it

some many meandering miles.

Lately,

these days,

I find myself hoping that

perhaps,

by dawn,

the sharp beaked birds will have pecked

up every last crumb,

every last seed

leading back,

 blanking

 bleaking

losing the way for us.

Some days,

these days,

i would not grieve if we

never

found our way back

to

these places.

i would not grieve if we

chose to just

lie down in the leaves

at the side of the road

and go to sleep.
