mountains & identities
we travel nowhere really
circles triangles squares
a turquoise strand of silk entwines us in a tree's branches
we dream light & believe in chance
all along doubting our goodness
we examine silence
suspended rain fashioned into wings
the sun in a dream. the indiscretions. imagined. buried.
conversations of no consequence. year after year.
we open another bottle of wine. who are you? who am i?
coyotes in the canyon howl. wildflower seeds planted.
remove your glasses. loosen your hair. thinking through
silence or a door closed.
air dissolves words
into a portrait of the sea
or a bird veiled in flowers
remove your coat
air is a road
where we meet as strangers
