victoria mallorga hernandez
I cannot remember &
the shore below my feet
confirms that a dream is all
I ever held & even if you wave
across the river, your lips in my hand
are the best reminder that memories are a form
of waiting, & I am tired of licking up the dregs of you
holding it inside my mouth, holding onto a whisper
that you know
was never there.
