I would do the sigil myself, but I can’t seem to know what to ask for. I ask for your help in clarifying my will, so that I can help myself.

say anything that means you forgive me.
hew with your teeth and tongue any
word from the monolith that broke the earth
between us. lend me the heft and shape
of your purpose, make me complicit with
your design, that we might tendril up
again entwined to wilt bravely against
the strength of the sun. give me another ending
besides the mean collapse of exhausted bodies
crawling back from the carrion field. begin again
or cut me from you with surety. it’s late for
that though. words are husks carried
only by our breath, and will forget themselves
underfoot among the dead leaves and grass,
and we will forget, and that is mercy. i’ll
say anything that means goodbye.
