Big Window

a quick glimpse of something beautiful

tempering by stefanie marlis

tempering


brush against,                             brush with death

birds bead the balcony
            dawn spires

countless stories of two kids             dropped like eggs into hot water

alseep in your bed, her long beauty
every man could love so long

••
you boarded a ship
no land ho

mostly fate swims beyond character
here is pain’s bandwidth, individual as

wasted             months of watching one life slip away
about the time the purple sky

found:
a Linda
a pearl
