Eyes squint
as you seem
a faint pinch
in her dark
seams: inch
by inch hair
looms out
to loss as
if living
meant weaving
a legend
out of your body,
now a shell
brittle enough
to break under
the weight of
a foot. No one
knew you beyond
the struggle
of being lesser
known; how
your hand claws
the vanishing
lump of sand
tells everyone
leaving you.
