Appreciate

in a harmony of fifths,

i strain to skip the steps,

a tide that recedes.

and it is the brave

who bleed

the gust of life

from palms too small to kiss.

wife to an energy

that flees,

a childhood need

to please.

this punctured heart

has paid

to toss hay

only to trace its descent.

i no longer see the need

to chase a bitter wind.
