So here we are
with words, fingers,
sighs & spaces,
saying nothing
in these same words
over-worn & overwrought

breaking ideas into pieces
for a pound of flesh
mine for yours
many too much
wine back to water
salt of the sea

The weather is watching,
always changing
how we breathe.

It's been so Long
and the earth turned hard 
waiting for your rain

waiting for you to come
to your own funeral

to cry 
for your heart 
& breaking
over & over

dreaming like water

we were thirsty 
we wanted all of you

we broke our wishbones
wanting more than we could chew

You need to open the window
to get out of the house
out of your mind
your skin

time to let love pass right through
