timmy,

This poem has a fleeting, ephemeral quality that I really enjoyed.

Mana: 
she said, whisper
words, kissed
my cheek

so cold the wind
froze her lip imprint
onto my skin

i rub it for luck

i remember all this:
her hands like bread,
her fingers holding bread

crumbs spilling down
her white sweater

everywhere i see her:
in clouds, a fishbowl
church bells, dark stairs

she is still there

in every moment, uncapped
in my hands, she is whisked
away by a breeze

like her ash to ashes
hovering in air
with smaller things
