A brief catalogue of loss

soft crease of skin / where your ring used to be / how you held me /
safe in someone else’s belonging / an unfamiliar river mapped in spilt salt /
last look of cotton candy sky / watching the sun fade to a glimmer of
gold / magic of your laughter / miles ribboned together in a breath / falling
asleep with an unusual thought: / I feel closer to you than anyone else
