Utterance

the moon-skin drum

tightens with chill,

the howl of compression waves

quickly overrun by light.

i respire diatomic molecules,

a double zero emptiness,

even when paired.

.

the wasted words

sequestered 

in whorled shelters

submerged in the seas,

utterances

that can never be 

repaired.
