Flotsam

Today the world breaks.

I am awake, unblinking,
wanting to rip flowers
to shreds.

It is the incidental details.

Your granite jaw, your
extended yawn, the
viridian sigh of boredom.

I am unrecognisable.

My shattered hands,
reaching for the empty
side of the bed.

The aching absence more than
milk spilled, more than rooms
which tilt with loss.

Today the world breaks me.

I am water-colour grief,
twisting to an otherworldly shape,
weeping salt with rage-red precision.

Detached, an acute fulcrum.

Your male scent lingers,
amid mysterious whispers,
your fissures, an imprint.

Flotsam

Artist's Description

Something came to me this morning on my drive into the Brisbane CBD.
How would I feel without my wonderful one?
And so, the ink flowed 6/9/12
