Tatul Sonentz - FADEOUT

The hours hang on
like soggy summer days
and the days slither
like overfed snakes
and slump in the dusk
like our own weary
drowsy romance…

Were those hours
days or months when
—lonely even in crowds—
I listened to your silence
with a song of reunion
frozen solid on my mind?

Alas
it was only a frosty score
of a fleeting song of
farewell… with muted
percussion trying to stir
rattle and jar a flaccid
fervor no longer
shared…


Tatul Sonentz
1997
