The memory of you
feels so real. It glitters there,
in the back of my

neck, filtering through
marrow & veins & flesh that
once felt imprinted

with your scent. It’s what
they call sillage and I have
to believe them, if

only to know you
might still be with me in some
molecular way.

And I think of your
particles filling me up,
lightning bugs waiting

to be captured in
a glass jar & kept until
all the stars burn out.
