watch the ants on the buds
of the peonies
find you. to
botanical love. where I am
the wind. where did I leave
my wind chime? some things take
time. the discovery of
the pineapple. neon and light
and neon. and a hair
cut and a brewery.
an apple in the shape of a heart.
anything in the shape of a heart.
waiting. the heart. was that man's first
unearthed thought? sound as feeling.
feeling as the loudest sound.
