Move Closer to Me by Milton Ehrlich

I see your numinous body

alone as a snow-capped mountain

far off in an endless horizon.

Swim through the air

where silence reigns

like a fish under water.

You don’t need a voice

or have to have to hide

to win a place in the

cacophony of the future.

Move closer to me, and

I will keep embracing you

long after I am gone.
