In Plain Sight

plain sight pic

Eyes that cannot close,
Do not always see
For behind each blink
Forms a memory,
And she makes none.
Her stone drapes,
Fold heavy,
As sunken shadows
Embrace gravity,

Deep loss
Is not solely felt
By those who remain
and remember,
The resilient ones,
Frozen awake
The benighted
Passively surrender
And dead stare,
with silenced tongues.
