My outline is blurry now
The fade from breath engaging with frost on a window in Autumn,
I’ve left her behind.
Scan for her body in the garden where I’m burying her slowly
as she decides to lay down;
A new heartbeat grows stronger every day
I feel tainted and confident and disgusted,
I want to leave it all behind.
Scan for my exhaustion, sweat layered under my cockiness
Her body’s in the garden,
I’m burying her slowly.
