Via Negativa


The air in a room after
a door closes. The cavern
of silence following the last clap.
What occupies a glass when
it's emptied. Two equal parts —
the difference between. The void
housed by a heart squeezed of longing.
The period.          The white after it.
A name at the tip of your tongue.
The lobe vacated by the missing
earring. The no one at the end
of a phone ringing. When a painting
is removed, its cream shadow,
unbleached by sun.
