    For Bruce "Heartbeat" Edwards

    ...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…

    she wakes,
    the urgency to conjure him
    is palpable

    she writes

    yet the blending of sounds, the coupling
    of consonants to vowels, the
    words birthed from mono/multi-syllables
    punctuation - all of it

    still falls short
    of who he is
    and
    how he drives her sweetly
    to the edge of sanity
    within the hallowed
    space between
    her temples

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

    no forcible entry ~

    no strangers here...

    she pauses her pen
    to begin again

    but
    there is no adequate way
    for her to say

    he.is.the.key.

    from the manuscript, "The Woman in My Attic"
