NaPoWriMo Day 8: Sky

Sky

I wrapped your clothes in sky
Sewed them with cloud
Mended their holes with
Thunder.

I wrapped your eyes in sky
Covered them with atmosphere
So you would only see your favorite
Color.

I wrapped your neck in sky
To hide the bruise and then
I fashioned a cloud necklace
Around you.

I cleaned your body in sky
Wrung the clouds like wet cloths,
Sponged off your old sorrow
Rinsed your creased brow
I tugged down the last of the sky
Brought it down around you

I wrapped your body in sky
Tucked it close to your skin
It made you so light that
The wind gathered you up
and you slipped out of my hands
and now you’re gone.

Gone.
