  1. “to grief”

    By Lucy

    bare-bones / wed to abandoning in-utero
    fingers; the apple bursts
    like an appendix / and the sea
    breast to breast / is a mistress
    to the Kalahari sun
    / mouthing /
    to my moon
    “death goes to the worms” / alien touch / my love has gone /
    threnody and dream,

    as if the Earth is glass /
    stranded / to the ghosts /
    of ourselves / this is the body
    of sand / my love
    is soon gone to / plasma
    / in the lights /

    threnody and dying
    the sea is an insomniac
    maniac / to the glassy
    violets / and stargazer flowers
    spawning on an inch of Autumn

    death; stroke the worms’ gut
    death feeds them well when we’re
    eventually gone /

    I tire to grief / alien touch / I withdraw from / the moon’s fingertips /
    for my love has gone.
