On the Edge of the Falls, Sarah Moore

An Imagined Theater

Scene 1.

A woman glides into a bathtub of snow.

As her body fills to brim she realizes it is not snow

But finely powdered shards of glass.

Scene 2.

She lies down on a sofa.

A man is drawn to her.

He peels off her skin.

She relaxes into his touch.

Scene 3.

Silky amber bed sheets.

A wall with electric lights.

The sound of a banjo.

Scene 4.

An act of love.

Things. Words.

Memories, real or untouched,

Warm like a fire.
