should i patter in endless circles





should i patter in endless circles,
anti-clockwise,
as dizzy as i may get,

would time revert
and the faint sound
of your breathing

reverberate
again

next to my heart?

would i feel
your warm breath's

weft
against my neck?

darling, i miss
the purl of your voice, its tenor
in my mind—

i hear it,

but it has grown distant
and faint.

although you seem out of reach
i know this is not so.

call me, my love—
tonight.
