Between the Hiatus by Maree Jaeger
published in Volume 1, Issue 4 on September 15th, 1994

You would bang at
the closed blue lids of my silence

While, in this makeshift womb
Dionysus, Orpheus and others were
trying to ripen.

Between the hiatus;
gossamer lines stretched
around houses
over oceans
somehow still joined
like stars strung out
thinly 
on my night sky.

Between the hiatus;
I would look at you
and separate 

your yolk

from my white.
