change of address

Sometimes we need to look back and hear the music of days ago to remind ourselves of the music and language still inside us.

where to sleep?
come to me
dream of
greenery
have me please
on my knees to
pick berries
with a breeze

Breathe, quiet leaves.
Fire, on the beach.

The moon last night pushed out through a curtain of clouds and called out to me “REMAIN”.i breathed in it’s romantic shadows and fierce eye contact.this lover changes shapes each night but it never tells me to go away.

uproot songs
full of need
plant my bags
like a seed
complicate
human life
judge my face
not with sight.
please send greenery,
send greenery.

I travel beneath the plaster of earth in this construction site.and, a door opens, and birds, and…
