it is a distance
measured in
the unwelcomed
deflection of peace

that inevitable terrifying
abandonment of memory
that critcal measurement
of distance
from the form
and the substance of
ones being
calculated from a moment lost
then another
then another

until only sparks
of a life
come in
as comets
low and fast
turning in time
to ashes
and floating into
their proper places
a collage for
others to decipher
