*

Wobbling on rocks and salt
scented with little goodbyes
-you're drowning in wood

-don't fool yourself, this door
can't save you now, it's filled
with corners still into the turn

already seawater and on the way down
a warm face though talk won't come
is hiding in back your mouth

naked, afraid your lips will move
as the silence the dead adore
without leaving the room.
