#OctPoWriMo – Day 20 – “Releasing”

Releasing // by Jennifer Patino

 

I.

‘Tis the season
for remembering

a throat rattle cough
every smoky Autumn morning,

a startled awakening
when a new memory

breaks through due to
your analyzing

II.

This year is a dry spell,
I am flaking

I make my own snow,
tie my own boot straps

beyond the boundary
of your control

so the sound of yours
no longer hurt me
