Rumination





 Rumination



stretches of you

cast in bronze and silver

forged by passions

unknown outside this house

unknown but to these walls



oh how I wish

everything could be

so different

but the coins have fallen

as they have



and I warm myself

by the fire

and not your breath

and body




Harris Coverley
