Brown, Rosellen 2005

Talk and you wonder if that could be a voice.
And you lie lightly, skimming the cream
of sleep off the top of an endless night.

Read this interview with Rosellen Brown from TriQuarterly:

He said, “We do not love by word alone,”
And pulled the silence down around his voice
As though a sound could hurt him. Since those words
Became their own perverse, inviting promise,
She had to smile: “Then what is left to say
That you will listen to, except a kiss?”

– Rosellen Brown, “Sestina for Three Voices”
