for emily

it’s been three years without you.

the bookmark they gave out at your funeral

is still hanging up in my room.

i look at it every day.

 

what i dream of is an art of balance.

 

my dreams are off-kilter these days,

these years,

this lifetime.

wonky the way life

ultimately always is.

 

wish you were still a part of it.
