Sun in the knifed horizon bleeds the sky,
Spilling a peacock stain upon the hands,
Across some murdered rocks refused to die.
It is your absence touches my sad hands
Blinded like flags in the wreck of the air.
And catacombs of cloud enshroud the cool
And calm involvement of the darkened plains,
The stunted mourners here: and here, a full
And universal tenderness which drains
The sucked and golden breath of sky comes bare.
Now while the dark basins the void of space,
Some sudden crickets, ambushing me near,
Discover vowels of your whispered face
And subtly cry. I touch your absence here
Remembering the speeches of your hair.
