Unevensong

Your breath on me:
a heavy neck-
lace with a large locket
glutted full of cement

The chain is thick
in links but insecure
at the rust
of a padlock

I wanted that breath
near my earlobe
at night but now
the pillow is a boulder

Here is where my head
breaks open and my sleep
secrets pour out
until concrete
