i could live in these woods

i love these trees, the way they
hum, murmur, weep
they weep and i am convinced it’s all for me


the colour of sheer lunacy

o darling, let me be your red crayon

o darling, let me be your red crayon

a bit about me

set apart from the greening fern heavens

set apart from the greening fern heavens

 

born on the cusp of falling, falling
born into twilight and gospel and wet
i was born missing the sway and the swirl
set apart from the greening fern heavens
born into the swaddle and the feral sweater
born into love and love was born into me

– excerpt, ‘a bit about me,’
from kissing keeps us afloat
