Blurred Photograph


eyes painted with the color of autumn leaves

ears like raw silk under the touch

arms braided into one another

hiding your hands,

a watch connecting wrist to arm

tucked between the crease of your elbow

and the right side of your abdomen

your chin casting a shadow onto the nape of your neck

leaning against a sandstone wall

dropping this photograph into the sink of memory

floats like a feather to the drain

where the color dissolves

and you disappear
