|Abstract: ||'Inside the poem'
Inside lies the poem.
Heard like a staircase creaking
a wood fire
it resembles bread
forgotten in the pantry
or a person
whose absence steals our sleep.
I kept the stub from that movie
(or was it a bus ticket)
I kept all the sunshine
from that walk I never took.
And inside me
the scent of emptiness rises like a flood.|
