in case of loss

a poem a day
glühwürmchen

(…) , poet Phillippa Yaa De Villiers posted yesterday on Social Media, as if she knew: that we face loss this summer, we breathe absence and we touch the cold cheek of our beloved again and again to affirm the unbelievable; we stroke the hair while searching for the difference. As if she knew, the poet wrote:

————————————-

In case of loss

In case of loss please return
to your bed. Sit quietly
and let the void 
swallow you up.
Do not attempt to replace
the irreplaceable.

———————————-

And she knows.
