After The Well of Grief

After The Well of Grief

After The Well of Grief*



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
