# Twiglet 289

Just Visiting

I don't know where you sleep 
These days // memory is a translucent shell
Balanced on rock teeth // it’s a window ledge I know,
And yet I’m here... dwarfed by latticed shadows,
Scoured wood grain and tight glass

And under the soughing of tired feet 
I hear your voice and see the lightning 
Colours in your hair // that last time
When you cried and I didn’t believe 
Things would change // the wheeling day.
