Love Songs to Those Who Have Stopped Speaking to Me


A purple geode. Ferns curling
beside the deck. Stories
of deer that come down from the mountain
though we haven't ever seen
them yet. Cacti with teardrop-shaped
leaves. Can you tell
which one is naturally silent,
and which one regularly
speaks to itself but only at night?
