Cornelis van Spaendonck

watch the ants on the buds 
of the peonies

find you. to 
find you
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.
