Dirge by Mark Leci


I forget when it was

that all the letters became evenly


when the wordsallmergedtogetherandicouldnotfind




whenthe music soregular and thudding

all the white keys vanished

a kick drum dirge

whenIforgot how to remember you

as more than a collection ofpixels

a tiny map of lightandshade


ina make-believe gallery

perhaps everything driftedupwards

growing lighter

or I simply sankwhile

the lifeboats spiralled awayaboveme

shading bluerbetween ripples

gravity grew strongerandstronger

until it kept evenmythoughtsfromrising


thanIcouldhopeforreasonto do so
