    I recognize the moment, and I like your "leftovers." Could "we" be moved to line 3? I think that arrangement sounds more like the human voice.

    Beautiful poem but I agree with Bill: "we" in line 3 sounds more like human voice…

    I get the impression that because of 'leftovers', the word 'we' has been left hanging for artistic reasons .. and I like that.
