Bewilderhof – 33
Chapter 33
– a severing, a slow separation  
  (it’s all semantics)

she knew he saw something

no one else did

when his gaze
standing in the
as he lay      on his back
repeating names
(those he could remember) 
she knew he saw 
no one else could
when he 
would stop
      whatever he was doing
to sit
without blinking
his lips moving
in slow voiceless 
she knew he saw something 
that no one 
else dared       for appearance 
                        of sanity 
                        was a thing
        to be guarded 
yes yes yes
she knew    he saw
she wanted to see
eventually the calls to come in for dinner had stopped, as did the reprimands to pay attention to tasks then
calls to get up
to get ready
get going
and the
    good mornings 
          hellos     good byes
              good nights
