He Shuts Out


Nicole Moore

Notecards filled like book pages
And the jailbirds sit in the back
Long hair caught under my teeth
Words jumble together

Where did it go
Nobody knows

Shallow breath in sweet long lines
With a whisper he shuts out
This time we stutter on basics
Vast fields tell us the time

Where did it go
Nobody knows

Where did it go
Nobody knows
