From Sonnets from E
I never gave a closing
to the story of your moved-away hair.
I never think of it
as over. I can measure
your hairs length in a motion.
In my mind, my hands are still strong
and your hair is still soft, every shade
of auburn sifted by sunlight.
It had slipped through your glasses
and clung to your cheek like a tear.
The kiss you left
closed in my palm
is still there
