paper letters

Paper Letters
paper letters
like polaroids
in the floating
light of candles
music to stare
at stars by

word eases into oases
of hair tangled in weeds
the stamp of the tongue
that seals us in time
to tell the tide of love

a pulse of salt
in a dress
seas of ears
on the page
the ink screams
for days

above the fold
eyes in the hide
of strangers

language veiled
in cloud or clay
intimate syllables
stillborn words

in a wreath
of leaves

whisper of rain
on paper lanterns


  1. Thank you, Emily! How are you?
