This Craving

A stone in an otherwise empty bowl.

A house full of bowls.


A longing, to pull you

out of me, already whole,


when you are nothing more than

dust compared to a breathing child.


Yes, I feel you in me,

an uneasy movement.


I do not know the flesh of you,

the scream of it, the tears

I will be grateful for.
