You have said it. To sleep without love. Same mistake repeatedly. Into the pond icing over. Moorhen with the velvet heads. Ducks that brown. Remove what you shouted. Erase me crawling on my knees. I begged you not to leave. Where did we last watch the world go by together? Was it against our wishes? You can’t see it with your head submerged. The skates sank to the bottom of the lake. Saint Cloud wore blue and gray. I threw the ring away. It is there. Tugged between two branches of the tree. The crows were looking for the gold.
