Walk and Talk

1)

HEAD SOUTH ON CLARK

as they said
it regains you;
and sun becomes
a smaller cousin
following you around
the side of
the house

stood on the
edge of the
street, staring at
the other side
took a breath
took a step
and flew

musculature never ending
strides and leaps
skin on paper
crumpling it until
it gains a
magical, if not
unexpected smoothness

this walking home
if not nowhere;
ends up being
a fairly stable
and fairly endless
set of circumstances
that fit

THE HEALING PT.

still
like a cut tree

confusion
at the sudden cutting

toiling
learning to float upright

mistakes
can begin to litter

watching
subtle clues to lead

fleeting
old ghosts beg less

fleeing
doesn’t do much good

healing
it starts to take

cultural center

PUTTING ONE TO BED

“Hun,

We won’t punish you for failing, understand we can’t.”

“Hun,

We won’t be around, all of the time.”

“Hun,

You are stronger than those who would attempt you.”

“Hun,

Your resilience will be a gleeful one.”

“Hun,

Your pride and your body are your hymnal.”

“Hun,

You can learn to sing the sun.”
