Absence (final NaPoWriMo poem 2014)


There’s been too much exiting

too many absences

the summer’s flutter

tinkles of heat those

sighing nights so full of

sinking stars, gone.


There has been leave-taking

those collapsing far-away

heat encrusted suns

that spatter the night

fall and implode

flowers of fusion


wrinkle and die

crumple and fade

from yellow and blue

to lack of light, blank so deep

that they are nothing

no smoke, no dust

just absence,


like now.
