Ode to a Goodbye by Francesca Aspromonte


Ode to a Goodbye


These words are my anchor, my prison, my ceremony


I weep for you in an instant


Fracturing time, halving moments


Stumble on forgotten still frames that clog my sleep


Kinetic, slow moving, images


Dampen the meaning, while grasping for life-lines that always fall short


Distended and unmutable


These words, my anchor, this prison, my ceremony


Do me no service, as I stumble to spit out a half-hearted
