elegy

by Luminita Suse

I am not afraid of dying
but us not being together anymore
frightens me

or sitting by the grape vine
on a bench in someone else’s dream
garden

quartz buds bursting from my arms
too heavy to lift the glass
to your lips

wine coagulating into sand grapes
in heart’s sandglass
broken
