Circa 2015

To My Poet,

I am a cursive body
running laps on your notepad
telling you the story
of how we first met.

communication is your weapon,
words are your ammuniti...

like an overcast of clean bed sheets
calming you into a dream.
It’s a lot like having
your head in the clouds,
but you’re still grounded, rooted

Turquoise water ripples around your ankles. The translucent hue of blue is vibrant and persuades you to step further into the depths. Your feet, sliding into the sediments, begin to investigate the sand smuggling between your toes. You notice fish swimming fast, and th...
