NaPoWriMo :: Day 9

I guess I should have seen this coming

you gave me runes for my birthday once
I use them to divine things I can’t otherwise know
ansuz, laguz, isa, wunjo, isa, ansuz, sometimes
I keep drawing until I get the answers I want…
my own way of rewriting life with you there
and me here and nothing but hagalaz, isa, and laguz
in the silence between us
the runes are made from sodalite, which means communication
and I don’t know whether to believe this was symbolic
of stones talking or foreshadowing of talk between us
becoming cold as stone

the runes aren’t saying anything about it.
