leaving myself behind.....

I thought I’d lost you. But you said I’m imbued


in the fabric of things, the way

that wax lost from batik shapes


the pattern where the dye won’t take.

I make the space around you,


and so allow you shape. And always

you’ll feel the traces of that wax

soaked far into the weave:

the air around your gestures,


the silence after you speak.

That’s me, the slight wind between

your hand and what you’re reaching for,

chair and paper, book or cup:


that close, where I am: between

where breath ends, air starts.
