Another cinereal mirror

And all the unease chiselled into our words, silences, and kisses,
How the evening rains froth into these voids and break into our parallel paths;
Thank God for the man who took off his hat when I walked past him today—
His silvering hair reminded me of my poesy that has seeped into this innominate numbness.
