For Jane

by
 225 days under grass
and you know more than I.
they have long taken your blood, you are a dry stick in a basket.
is this how it works? in this room the hours of love still make shadows.
when you left you took almost everything.
I kneel in the nights before tigers that will not let me be.
what you were will not happen again.
the tigers have found me and I do not care.
