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
