The House They Fell Apart In

She watched framed by oak while he drifted away

rattled glass giving up at the very edges

she's secretly hoping for dumbstruck reprisals

from all the ruin that she was left with

turned on

like cinders catching curtains

obediently burning and wrapping around

all those endless glimmering moments together

all those shiny egg-white million years ago moments

all the fainting silence that looking at still images brings

all the laid out mute sounds whispering through walls

all the never again 's

every endless wandering scattered thought they've ever had

like cold stars flailing in calliope skies

like a snapped kite string
