In aisle 13 amidst silence,
the anthology of poetry in my hand
shouted to you.

I have that one, you pointed,
as dead poets
pushed you towards me.

A smile escaped from your soft eyes.
You laughed like lightening.
Stacks of paper were turning to dust.

You knew dreams dont dream words,
bodies do,
how we might become a poem.

Judith Pordon
