I always picture them whispering
cool chants of time
into the voided fingers of my hair.
I only stare as the ache shakes
a sweet-bitter milk from my head.
The smell is like a sad friend
drunk with rain.
Magnetic word tiles selected on the basis of what appealed to me that day. (I have LOTS!) Since the day I wrote it WAS an anniversary, that also became part of the prompt.
