This is black and white;

This is the Bible:

The bump in your nose is exquisite,

your eyelashes are the only shade I need.

 

Even now, when you have been long gone,

your hair is in my bed

my  soap

my   hand.

 

But I know it’s the end.

I have kept company with many endings;

I’ve memorized the sound of their voices.
