Writing Space – Angela Weiser

lift me into the empty room

do you remember the shapes
        of leaves?

inordinately … bare spaces
return our talking from
                        the silence

to avoid the extreme image

the thought that my feeling
on this day is incommunicable
to others as much
                as to paper

the mallow flowers
on an evening hung with dew
    within a small room
