Aubade

by Geffrey Davis

 

          One grief, all morning—: it matters where

in the body we finally hang

 

          the turn: too high & nothing larger than

loss throws down against the laden light.

 

          It takes a lower risk to ring

the next darkest depth from the other side

 

          of everything—another venous truth

torqued from the bright length of blood.
