    Wild words.

    They seem a troubled memory
    of old socks and shoes thrown away
    last winter. Along with coffee granules
    heaped upon our struggling city garden.
    Amongst the tired lemons squeezed
    of their zing.

    I've followed the contours
    of grass and gravel, came to know
    each like a neighbour: slightly aloof
    yet friendly, a reserved smile and nod
    in helpless orbit.

    We are stars, you said to me.

    Nights ago,
    when every song sang of coming light,
    of mercurial storms bringing puddles
    to stomp on. Splash, and the ensuing solace
    of laughter. Growth, a diadem for your brow
    and a kiss on your nose.
    We are bones, I say to you.
    Perfumed bones
    in a locket.

    It's October now

    and I've swept
    the kitchen clean. Each sauce-stain
    and oily residue the fruit of so many
    living so closely. All of us, in our rooms,
    with our own philosophies. A piano plays
    next door, upstairs a communion
    of hurried noise.

    In November, I'll be twenty-seven.
    In December, this year will turn
    into another poem.

      i like the lines emwren pointed out...

    yes, we are bones....the locket like our poetry will remain after all else turns to dust.
    there will be an imprint of us left.

    the poems of our lives. we just hope our scent left is a good one...and a strong enough one to last long after we do...

      This is fine poetry. I love narrative poems, and the way this one is both clear story and mystery makes it quite enjoyable to read.

    I love the allusions to the months- the marking of time and how those moments tick by so quickly and before we know it, 'this year will turn into another poem'. Quite resonant.


    We are bones, I say to you.
    Perfumed bones
    in a locket.

    is wonderful, along with so many other lines in this poem- but this is my favorite section.
