Hello poets

Following on from Buddy’s feedback on a line I wrote that reads

– write it down –

I’ve tried to unpack that and pack some heat in

*credit to Mathew – I had to get arches in their somewhere after his “under your arches” line last week.

Write It Down

To catch birds in my mouth
grow crow feet
scratch the dirt
quill my tongue

skin autumn
freclepelago my ocean
love you like the land loves the sea

soft suffering truth
palm psalm songs for flat toned feelings
fingerprint my labyrinths

are we lost yet?
beautiful beyond believing
tears taste mountains
an ocean on my lips
kiss your arches new again
wave the way ahead
dawn break upon us
mercy be
