Umami

Behind this mesh of rain,
this leaden sky, I know
tonight the moon is full.

After the story read
from pages of a book, the one
whispered in the ear, made up,

stumblingly, is the one
that you’ll remember.
Though it is also true:

what the mouth
will testify, the body
will not always do.

 

In response to Via Negativa: Snowfall.
