After The Well of Grief

After The Well of Grief

After The Well of Grief*

 

suffocating

on the bottom

of David’s Well

 

 

frozen in this haunting prism

of others’ glimmering wishes

three small round coins tarnish my palm

 

 

weight too heavy to carry up

to light and breath

back to a pretend belonging

that isn’t mine
