boys who get lost
on the way to being
little messiahs;

girls, who sit quiet inside
large rooms without ever
being too small;

songs from under
apology and regret, to where
starlight and super nova
begin everything;

the rope God used
to tie us together;

water that eddies
into the falls and out
of the falls, without ever thinking
it was lost to the cascades;

the ground under your feet
when it beeps up to you
I think we're in love;

your hat, when the wind blows hard;

poems, and those who write them.
a birthday poem for j.

Things for J. to Hold by =manchaliaina is one of those few poems that are so perfect they rob me of the ability to create a snappy write-up. Honestly, I'm speechless - all I can suggest is that you stop reading me and start reading her!

I second all that! ( Suggested by zebrazebrazebra and Featured by imperfect )
