we need some space, ya’ll

(for shawna)

 

..

and a place to call
our own, crawl
to for hope and
healing – sans ceiling,
wide sky.

we need a deep breath
and enough depth
to steep ourselves
in words and tea
and sea.

we need a quiet place,
the slow trace
of salt on skin;
the spin of small
wheels, jingling.

‘sall in her head

pain.

………again.

right between the eyes,
like an un
-quiet strain.

my
-grain.

……….again.

familiar thrum;
like an old,
unwelcome friend.

Prerequisites

..

We need some string to tether the moon
when it flees the sky.
We need a still slipknot that holds as loose
as a hand’s whisper, and a shadow shawl of
nightspill to pad the ache that fills the edges,
and a wisp or two of a wishful thing
that cries and is not answered. We need these things
between idlings, after dusk,
and, if we keep them, then someone someday,
wandering wild after a walk
and supper, gathers cold.

..
Here is the skeleton poem offered by Quickly

We need some ___ to ___ the ___
when it ___ the ____.
we need a ____ ____ that ___ as _____
as a _____’s ___, and a ____ ____ of
_____ to pad the ___ that fills the ___,
and a ____ or two of a ____ thing
that ____ and is not ____. We need these things
between ____ , after _____,
and, if we keep them, then someone someday,
_____ _____ after a walk
and supper, _____.
