for joshua aaron sipin-gabon

 

 

 

 

my tongue can’t relay to you
these words to say goodbye

it hurts
the language: it isn’t enough

but my body carries
those words

enough to fill the sea

and even when you’re gone
the fingers on my chest

are yours, the air that flows:
it’s our breath, enveloping

these pangs, they hurt
this absence, your missing voice

touch, but our bodies imprint
these words: i love you

and it’s a sea, a sea
