Reunion Poem by barbara williams

Reunion

Rating: 0.5


We crawled backwards
through time
we narrowly maneuvered
the meager hole
which scraped our sides
bloody and exhilarated,
two decades vanished
tenderly, you dabbed my wounds
with salt,
and I yours
We walked our sacred place
opening cupboards, peeking behind curtains
we stumbled upon skeletons and dreams
then, found loss-
gingerly, we tossed it back and forth
we dared not touch the wand
left carelessly by an open window
Night came, you placed a star in my pocket
as did I in yours
We patted our wishes
and crawled back out
as painfully as we'd arrived.
