By Sara Mosier

	unravel us both with
	the rising of
	the sun
fooled again
	by hurried voices
gone by daybreak.
	“We cannot be saved” you whispered in my hair
when the light exposed
	the freckles on your spine
you’re here only
	in memory
	I’ll keep my favorite
parts of you
in crystal jars of dried
	lavender by the door
where you left me
until the night returns
