notice the single petal
of a flower pulled
from the patch near
the cloud shaped stones
we found it
pointing at the
saltwater sentience
it is alive”
we muttered beneath
each fragrant breath
all the air in our lungs
drug over this one

and if you agree
we get to have that
most alive thing between us
the breathing, heavy, real connection
truth and greed
i’ll take you when i need you
you can have me always
all ways

it was there for us
under the old tree
a representation of everything

i want to be closer
than physics allows
let’s break the laws of science
with the magic of love

December 17, 2021 love

a silk bandana

a silk bandana
held back her hair
calmed her waves

but still i heard
the salt water rush
over slipping sand

November 28, 2021 love

somewhere east

i sent you flowers
from a cold city somewhere east
your smile in those blossoms
unfurled me
in new ways

November 2, 2021


i am 99% imperfect
and the 1%
is my love for you

October 5, 2021 love

gently on the waves

from across the sea
i dreamt of our lips touching
gently on the waves
