pillow talk

asleep, I can speak
your name as if through
a hole in the wall

I don’t know it but here
on this couch, I know its
one syllable, the space

of a single breath; a
ghost-name, a slight
indentation on

my pillow.

of little wars


I push my landscape
as you pull at my tendencies-

& our little war
