there is power

there is power in the silence

of our bodies.

do not move

within me your self.

do not breathe

your rhythms through


hold. hold.

swell for the holding.

I grip. the calm that keeps you still.

and there are no ripples of

breathing. in the motion

of our stillness.


a condensation.

thickening heavy.

an unbearable gravity.

of being.


and then the breathing begins.
