the Weight

a poem by Dale Costello, Australia - poetry writer, author, poet

stone, stone..
and truth alone
crawling into mound
should breath become sound
weight..
and your hand
resting in mine

ounces we're born
placed or torn
loose of the night
that gift of sight
should those mountains see
create perfect memory
resting in you

pure weight of air
feathers in her hair
torso and tattoo
ink where it knew
butterflies
blue on her skin
hovering

place and destination
stones to the waiting
beating heart
all we can't start
or finish in the leaving
souls to mere breathing
ribcage rattling

stone, stone
and truth alone
accumulates into being
night and the speeding
blur of blue and green
all I can't be
without that beautiful empty..
