Miles to Go

 Morguefile: Alin

When this is done

I will lay you here

in that thin line

between earth and air


I will stop crying--

eyes will have dammed themselves

behind sloughs and marsh lands

where sanctuary now resides


When this is done

I will know who I am

and where my feet are


And if I am lucky

I will lie down with you

your laugh, fast and hard

behind my eyes.
