Immense Magnolia Petal

Immense Magnolia Petal

I thought death was one more way of being
and not the other side of stones
I looked for the smile of my childhood under your face
and found your mother’s mourning glove
your words fell like marbles down the stairs of silence
to the foot of my soul
mummified by your gesture
earth opened to swallowed dawn birds
and a tide of fear covered you
death settled in the pores of day
and I, undaunted watchman,
witnessed the disintegration of the universe
