where we left off


they scoffed at us for
swallowing that sun
-flower dream, for holding
our breaths in the snow.

we’ve gathered so much
more than loose-leaf scenes;
we know these syllables might
just stand on their own.

and so we pick our phrases
gently, from the breeze. we
bouquet them into bundles
with ribbon, time and twine.

we hold ellipses loosely, fake
a sneeze, and know that all
these letters will flitter, flit
and    f    l   y.
