What Is Lost by Stephen Bunch

What Is Lost

What is lost
returns in dreams,
what is missed

clings in memory
like morning fog
in river bottoms,

the touch of a hand,
a conspiracy of bodies
in dark receding rooms.

by Stephen Bunch

Editor’s Note: This imagistic poem is one long sentence, forcing the reader to make associations from line to line, until the last two settle into the mind with shocking realization.
