A Tarnished Line

A Tarnished Line  by Teri H Hoover


Within the quiet cocoon
drenched in transparent promises 
to create a burnished heart.

Within the austere cocoon
unhindered by emotional barnacles
it is easy to still the tongue.

Within the brittle cocoon
a blur between leaving and clinging,
emerging to newborn dissatisfaction.

Without the rough cocoon-
exposed.
Flinty chalk will scrape across the skin,

The first of many lines.
