poetry by Allison Geller

 


 

june

 

the days are too hot, and too many, for argument.

 

she was met by a passing train

when she went to cross the tracks.

she hurried to the street corner,

so she could feel, for a second,

what it could mean to travel through time—

to be going, and going

two places at once.

 

he plants aromatics

in the expectation of her,

his hands driving the earth

in trust of all it contains.

 

july

 

the universe leaves its stain on his pillow,

under her head. Her sigh

is the day giving out, now the night

 

to still deeper night.

sleep always takes him first.

next to but not near,

she wills her eyes open,

 

hopes to cause his sleeping form pain.

the heat has taken its duty to heart.

she doubts her own honesty,

and he loves her more.

 

 

august

 

dim and damp,

the moment is always between storms,

impossible to tell if one has passed

or is coming.

 

he uproots his herbs

and lets the dry soil run through his fingertips,

smelling of depth and something known so much

it’s forgotten,

 

while she waits for her time to make the best of things—

the rumble, a whistle.
