fragile

you &i both know i wore the delicate gold link necklace
of emerald bright green lakes for as long as i could
&didn’t i say i would love our fragile ecosystem to death?
&did i not suffer daily sunsets? overlook watershed moments
to wonder, “how come our clasp is accidentally estranged in my hand?”
&couldn’t we un-break the dark corners at the continental divide, you say,

but i note a diminished tenderness, in that

aspen leaf floating
from nymph lake to dreaming lake
— empty is the bowl

  1. Fragile glade, indeed, this pool so rarely filled completely by two. I love the dimensional float here, the jewel on a chain become a lake become an ecosystem become a relationship become a floating aspen leaf. Well done Angie. Sad when readers drift back to themselves after a passing glance.
