Wadi

running through it
bare feet cool

great emptiness
desert
while one third need
(thirst, bathe, flush)
water runs through
great emptiness
city

a cool flue
stones

5am

waking to a sticky black sickness
which covers me
water inside rises to sick
as i rise
the sick rises
and then we
subside as one
undone

outside the birds
flight
call
a gnat
a
noise i do not know
dawn slow
but the sky
turns
the
sky

bulging bole of the box elder
plum green
down there
in the garden
something moves
i do not follow
though
i wish it
hidden


waking to a silky blueness 
which covers me
after inside raises to silk
as i raise
the silk raises
as then we
risen
now one
become

gift

ever thought
to just bring her
tulips
star lilies
or
potted thyme?

he said
oh
why don't you treat yourself
and find flowers

isn't the same
somehow
as
an
unexpected
gift
white
at night
spreading bed covers
tiny grey flecks
move
the smallest wings
bring circles
of black stars
far far away

per astra

spray
the duvet
turn off
the light
white
attracts them
starstruck

glass-winged
gone

this feeling

I've got this
feeling
my number
is up
connected
to you
all I care about

while you shower
I'll cry

knowing
you are doing what you do
out there
no complaints

go
ahead
I've got it bad
this life
this
feeling
