Poems by Emily Walling

What happens to the ones I leave behind

is not for me to decide. I rid
them by gravity of a free-falling
white binder, and the cycle
turns over to the ones in the
shadows. They wait,
they stalk, they talk, they walk.

Senescence

Before the door there is air,
after the door there is space.
