In the End
By Cynthia Spencer
breaking bed-bones with satisfying
smacks, to find
pillow clouded agoraphobic, crawling
low and sweetly
out of blanket loam.
Someday, I will go around
with clasps undone. I will speak
myself an opening. A photograph
will find its way into the hands
of someone who wondered, long ago,
what it was made of. Someone
will be answered, not stop asking.
