electrifying silence


the linger of electricity remains in

the air, an electrical storm//ghosts of the landline hides in

our mistakes//do you feel the spark,

inflammatory grace, resting your head

upon stone-cold ground, warehouse blues//

I remember so long ago the static of your

hand in the night, the volume of capacitance

that resides in our bones//when we were 15,

I think I lost you to the storm, electrifying silence.
