    the language always fails

    even her best attempts
    to convey how he moves
    the wind around
    in the attic where her
    dreams are born….

    return void…

    the blending of sounds, the marriage
    of consonants and vowels, the formation
    of mono/multi-syllable words, accents,
    punctuation

    still fall short
    of who he is
    how/
    what he does in that
    space between
    her temples


    inside her house
    there is another stirring;
    evidence of
    open gates,
    embers glowing warmly upon
    her hearth,
    doors ajar

    no forceable entry ~

    no strangers here...

    but there is no adequate way
    for her to say

    he is the key...
