Laid upon you
Daylight has to offer
& nighttime must cradle
Sentient bliss of
Brings all to surface
Cold rising star
Measures of temporality
Set upon a universe
Baby pink chaos
All the ways we scheduled tasks. Groceries after cups of tea & loss. Costs.
Balcony lunches. Strategizing revolved futures. Hanging roses upside down to dry them & remember the purple sky.
High up in the treetops, we talked to squirrels, sparrows, many cats. They taught us how to cook & make plans.
Spiral staircases to people in dreams. We.
