Invisible Threads

Ten hearts are hanging,
like an endless interrogation,
bound by passive restraints
under desiccated burgundy
tongues–lukewarm lovers–who
have forgotten ancient names.

Throughout the village, voices rise.

The faithful,
seared into moist pine, eternally,
live with us now.

Forbidden sighs gently graze my mouth.
Into this heart they come.
