Verse: There is no you

(nb: I took the first line from a recent poem by @cr8tivecandy because I can't be trusted)

There is no you
and I am wanting

to interrogate
your absence
with a kiss

but I burn my tongue
on incantations

the bright serrated shadows
of your sleepless name

until my mouth
is an empty ocean

and this
is a song
of sand
