resilience / dumb persistence / that aftershock

black sands are many sands

to lay down among them is

to forget your name

the sky fails to forget

it makes mention of you always

the many ways it calls to you

fail to make amends

the color blue is blackness

the gentle clouds in tumult, too — 

your only monument
