On any given moment

on any

given moment

i can write

a reckless poem

but tonight

i think of you

and words form

across this page

with tangled verbs

they caress

the folds


the treetops

to tell the world

you are mine

to tell the world

we are one

standing structure

being held by

the whispers

that live between

just us
