unforgetting

unforgetting s

It’s going away, fraying–
this tenuous connection–
what is the meaning of never?

Death.

Learning new ways
to describe
what isn’t,

we make no
apologies.  Words can’t be
sorry enough.

Extinction.

We learn nothing,
believing we already know.
We fill our plates with emptiness.

A quadrille for dVerse, hosted by Linda.  The word is extinction.
