A look is not bloodless By Amy Pollard

A look is not bloodless

Six feet apart
our bodies weave
through sidewalk

do you see me

the seams of my skin
unraveling, no longer

somewhere my ashes
are already buried
on a hillside

do you see the folds
of my shadow—

like cloth pulled
over the mouth
up to the eyes
