Series: Bleed Necklace: The Body Undone From Its Error

THE RAIN THAT COULD NOT REACH THE EARTH

You had stood here before You thought smiling The way a hand rests Softly on your back

A pulse caught stilled.

What in you causes the whisper?

There was the dull light of the barn.

And now chewing an unripe pear Stolen from a neighbor’s tree.

Why speak at all if you are not love?
