SANCTITY OF DEPARTURE

 

 

paper hangings

thud of the door harp

where does the song begin

            the singer end

            can we hear departure

            in the octave wind

 

or does sound go out

in a blended, painful whirr

like a faded painting

a kitten’s last purr

 

            or more a whimper in the grass

            depleted marrow of our crust

            golden silence in the

            symphony of dust?
