Tell Me The Story...Tell Me The Story! (For Junie)

There is...

always a somewhere

you are telling me the tale

of Orpheus and Eurydice

without neither you nor I
knowing

that you are dead

& exist only
in this telling

& my remembering.

Your death
is very far away

like a myth or
a thing of legend

and you are so near

the words on your breath
gently move my hair

as I fall asleep
quietly beside you...

...you falling asleep beside me.
