When Kathleen and her father faced the slope,

I grasp loosely at the airiness
So vibrant on the escarpment

Leaving no mark

Tickling my tongue?
Lingering within my heart?
Eternity breaks open

Multicolored tears
For one gone too soon
And one who’s denied her hand to hold
Halfway through his journey towards manhood
