 in the corner
 of a pub
I write vows
 and eulogies
 I speak
 of the dead
 the departed
speaking of love
 waxing of life
 on the breath
 of a baby 

I take minutes
 of hours
 I wrap my hands
 in cheesecloth
stained with black
 my fingernails
 have loosened
 from their beds
life passes through
 my pen, surging
 and ebbing
 with each tragedy
 or celebration 

I read lips
 hear tones
 watching from afar
 the faces
but unable
 to touch
 the life in them
