Like Footsteps and Glances


Voices float, cross, melt, fade, and dissolve
like footsteps
and glances

Recognition sparks, jabs, irritates, and overwhelms
like hunger
and desire

Breezes whisper, cling, insinuate, and ruffle
like memory
and forgetting

Shadows fall, stretch, deepen, bite, and swallow
like animals
and passion

Light imposes, hints, confronts, argues, and conquers
like birth
and death

Time creeps, crawls, flies, laughs, breaks, and disembowels
like love
and hate
