  1. If the Wet Air Remembered Something

    If the wet air remembered something, the dry lost it. I felt it the first time around. It made me feel I would never see you again, but you when your voice appeared I cringed. Was that the feeling? I couldn’t remember you when I was with you, but when you left, your memory never left me. The shadow followed me on early mornings when I woke up and it overflowed me until the afternoon when I was ready for dusk to tuck me into night. Goodnight.

Sometimes the reflection blinked, sometimes it smiled, sometimes it frowned, but most the time, it looked back at her with a stern resignation of indifference.

  4. Water in a Bowl

    You might be my soul mate, but I’m looking for someone here on earth.” Her words remained motionless. Even after the expressions began to fade, he recalled touching the water in the bowl, look at her while she spoke, his fingers brushing against the taut surface of the water, trembling.

  5. Light Dark

    Lux, a light without shadow, without the shaping of something, Light, creeping into this window and along the drapes shapes, draping, lighting the edges, soft leicht, fluttering so much those edges begin to lift themselves.
