The Eraser Called Resolve

Ruth Mostrales

Because one cannot withdraw the words,

don’t recall them aloud —

the verses that drew lines on your face,

around your eyes, dimpled your cheeks,

colored your soul…let them limp

there in the darkness of your thoughts.

No, let them wallow where they are

unseen, forlorn, abducted, unspoken in the lobes

of darkness where they belong —

think them, but never aloud.

If you ever must, read them in the dark

like a secret chant, where shadow after shadow love is

erased by resolve.
