Not One

So. Inspired by Bill Holm, I have decided to write one poem a day. Most of these poems will probably be truly awful works-in-progress. This is more for myself than anything else. A blog is just more of a concrete commitment than a notebook.

A memory breaks if it repeats itself. Remember —
just your smile in the morning. No face. A warmth of ribs and skin, and then
your grateful hands and mouth. Not faded, exactly. More like
A water ripple
losing its solidity, not one, but not yet sea.
