the silence speaks:
“you’ll be buried sullen and empty.”
your family’s shame
kept beside you at all times.

it’s the same battered resolve.

the soil behaves
as if you’re finally loving again.
the leaves decay
atop the envy we knew you’d repressed.

now, you are all that you hate.

on some hazy day,
when your return swallows me whole,
i’ll know to speak
in ways the summer couldn’t defend.

the silence heaves:
“leave your resentment where it belongs.”

did you catch the light through the cracks?
