Kristin Abraham – Another Almost Poem


Kristin Abraham

Another Almost Poem


(You don’t feel my salt
when it spins a nervous circle)

Perhaps
such a cowardly word
as perhaps also tastes of salt. Perhaps
a woman, movement to most definitely
by demonstration perhaps
or as sighing we are women
or as perhaps women, sighing.
And not at all, that is not it at all. Your confident
ear. Hello, my head already hurts. And
hello, and hello, hello.
