    You remind me
    of things

    of the brief passing of light –
    mid-winter – across the parquet
    under our four dancing feet

    of how the sun burnt
    in my own solar plexus
    turning snow into mud. First loves are alike,
    aren’t they, surreptitious.

    I put my foot down on her
    chair, maybe even a napkin
    to ward off the dust, terracotta
    from the sudden giant alleys
    of cedars, maybe, and wildish
    felled flowers, smelling damp
    earth’s advance of fall.

    Soft breeze tangled up
    in my neck, set alight
    specks of dust
    floating – taste of smoke
    in your hoarse broken whispers
    as the sun died
    in my palm

      I like that this poem is full of sense impressions. Part of loss is struggling with the disparate pieces that remain, and I think this piece captures that feeling well. My only recommendation is to watch how your lines fall; the disjointedness is nice in the second and beginning of the fourth stanza, and the rest of the poem could benefit from a similar style. As far as word density, I would go sparser in the fourth stanza; this is a place where less is more.
