In My Solitude

I feel your presence
and hunger for your
embrace to entwine
us like twin molecules.
I monitor a thread of
your breath mingling
with mine for company
so that I’m never alone.
I cling to the photograph
standing before our silo—
resolute farmers prepared
for whatever unruly surprises
stormclouds may have in mind.
