Graham Bell

I cradled you,
in my arms,
holding you,
until,
Sleep, overcame me.

A stir,
you did not make,
deathly silent,
you were.

I whispered, shouted
teased-
silence.

Checking, your
pulse-
solid-
yet
you-
were quiet,
and your silence,
I took with me,
into,
my
dark
slumber.

Listen

delicately chosen,
selected, with
loving
care.
speaking,
enunciating, each
syllable-
precisely
delivering, comforting
soothing,
life
giving
words.

While playing,
I learn,
more
about, the rules.
I wait,
I call you,
you text me,
volleying.
It’s a game,
a small,
minded game.
I no longer wish,
to play-
with
you.

Last Call

Swaggering,
staggering,
they enter,
the night.

Intoxicated
smiles,
words, whispered,
plans, forth
coming.

The
lonely formation,
I watch,
shaking my head,
joining the ranks,
marching,
reluctantly,
home.
