From the collection published in 2022, Writing Notebook 2021.
These poems are from 4/7/21.
husbands and wives had married
to be together and
Now, surprised at occupying prolonged silence,
argue in the manufacture of something to say
the sallow sparkle
of a vague headache
Maybe it was between the
adjacent moments in which
the smile deteriorated And
that panic feeling hit you

I’ve been lucky that Sparky and I are comfortable in silence. Love the last one!
Thank you. Lots of people feel they need to fill silence. I so often wish they would not.
Oh that first snippet is amazing and deep – “adjacent moments” – such amazing word crafting Claudia!
Thank you. I think this collage format helps me think. I do better when I am putting pieces together than when I am just trying to think of things in the abstract.
