How to drive someone crazy from 1100 miles away

Silent and lovely

I am just hours late for St. Brigid's Day, and the silent poetry reading. Enjoy my absolute favorite, all about love, loss and rememberance.

Body, Remember....

Body, remember not only how much you were loved,
Not only the beds you lay on.
But also those desires glowing openly
in eyes that looked at you,
trembling for you in voices-
only some chance obstacle frustrated them.
Now that it's all finally in the past,
it seems almost as if you gave yourself to those desires too-how they glowed,
remember, in eyes that looked at you,
remember, body, how they trembled for you in those voices.
