A Poem by Ookpik
"

Pulled from a memory - but again, just an exercise.

"
.
.
.
The blinds rattle behind the vacuum of her departure
.
And the sudden emptiness wraps its arms
.
Around the baseboard corners of my enclosure.
.
.
It's always the smell that lingers longest -
.
It that haunts the closet, 
.
Touches the bedspread 
.
With its early morning fingers
.
And the emulsified imprint of new despondence -
.
.
Her perfume, 
.
The fragrance of her laundry detergent,
.
The synesthesia of her laughter
.
And the teardrop spatter
.
Painting the walls with the impression of her color.
.
.
I will miss her;
.
I announce softly to the ceiling.
.
.
I will miss her a lot.
.
.
And though this feeling won't last forever,
.
I still prefer it to holding her memory
.
As a brief, and passing afterthought.
.
.
.
