Counting Faces

Lisa Cox

I lay on the grass
Counting the stars
Lost
Each one I named
For those
I lost
Lowered in the
Ground
Lost
Never knew
Except in sepia
Portraits and old
Stories
Lost
Never born but
Only hoped for
Wept for when
Lost
Those I knew
But then life
Went on
They became
Lost
Those far away
Know only through
Fragile wireless
Connections, reality
Of connection
Lost
Dreams of love
And loving
Lost
Faces sealed
In the stars
