Questions

What are possessions

Because she is deaf she uses her hand-voice
Words she can’t hear but she can see

Every word is a poem
Every word she loves

Love can create a wreckage
Indifference cuts affection

Imagine glacier breaking
A sound she can not hear

Her hands can voice the catastrophe
Your eyes can paint the scene

We don’t have to hurry or have everything
To live forever

Sometimes we don’t have to be heard
Or be seen.

Absence can assert a presence
Asking herself abstract questions.
