ruminate

Sleep, tracing your breath
with mine
Watch
the arch of your
eyebrow, your
lashes flutter
I try to climb
inside your dream.

You are so far
I can't touch
your danger
can't feel you strain
the angle of
your elbow
how it juts above
your head
as you
show me
the place that hurts

Rumination
doesn't help, you are
to far
I wrap you in
plastic
set you aside
for safe keeping
