Learn A Dead Language

Learn A Dead Language

Learn a dead language
and you will know how to speak
speak with ghosts, that’s what you said to me
the morning brindled, the low sun an owl’s eye
saw your hand snowy and lean
point to the sky, with foodstuffs dribbled your chin
the river was still running behind the silent house
it did not run for me, it did not run for you
the blankets sobbed over your toothpick knees
mucus pooled in your carunculas sleeping
Learn a dead language, you breathed
Learn a dead language
Ad astra per aspera
Ad astra per aspera.
