Sage

End of memory.
The secret, no doubt
as it should be, leaves.

Ashes
wrapped in linen
hold grief.

Gone and with you, the secrets
you had held hard and deep
as stones under water and we,
with the wisdom of children,
felt the ripples, averted our eyes,
diverted our words, continued on,
all our lives drawn to things
at the edge of our sight
like the flicker of minnows
we lured with string
and bits of bread but never
caught.
