Reverberations: A Cento
Lines from Courtney A. Butler’s Wild Horses
The fireflies are missing.
The birds chirp while pieces of my heart fly east.
It feels shameful to admit:
You are not an ornament anymore.
Parts of self spilled about:
cups and kettles dashing to the rocks below,
pre-sunset, grey washed paths are sweet curves.
the decent is gorgeous.
Upon returning home
chocolate piñon coffee on her lips
She and I become closer to one.
We are aspens in the woods.
