After the scream,

there is always a swallow

the god-mouth devouring

of these calcified remains

and what is left, then, but silence.

The birds, too, have fled.

their nests now dust-hovel shallows

in an endless, barren winter.

The quiet place is not as I had imagined -

I am not made whole in your absence;

there is just space.

And, still,

so much time to waste.
