you said
so I
swung away
to build momentum
for maximum impact
i let go and 30 something terror
turned me brittle
i swung the final moments of my arc in silence
and when I reached collision
i crashed into your hard
dimensionally scattered
my one million glittering pieces
clattered to the floor
now down here amongst the mess
i pick up my pieces
i cut up my fingers
on the sharp edges
of all my nothing fears
i weep myself into liquid
until i am just blood and tears
but at that salty source i find
i’m still game
to call your name.
