More Than


You skittish but smart mouth

Together with your lethargic eyes

Matched with unlined cheeks

As your heart clatters with cries

Whose pieces are crawling

Back into its wholeness

Decaying bones and ossifying flesh

But you aren’t a broken soul alone

And mesmerizing and heart-breaking

And moving and holding on

To something impalpable

Which is the best thing

People could ever believe in-
