Man School by R.H. Alexander
She has decided
she will give you everything
everything she has saved for some moment
even if it will never happen
she would give it gladly.
In the glow from the willing
in the humbling generosity
in the trembles in her voice
in the way the tears come
bow your head
once and for all
into the kindness and learn.
Then She Looked Up by R.H. Alexander
Then she looked up for the first time
Something had broken through the silence, a sound a sigh in a breath
perhaps it was a weight shifted
or the weight of the silence itself
or the way I pulled at my wrists
the desire we ached for
the infinite weight of desire itself or all of these things that had waited so long.
And now, where is her voice
but better to ask, where is mine?
