let it be known

By | 1 December 2022

let it be known that I witnessed the valley.
imprinted grass like the coast of ritual
washed & walked on & two friends, two lovers
bleated at dogs. here lies a shadow
let it be mine, I say. let it shed warmth.
I stick twigs in holes when friends tell me
of snakes & walk on stones kissing in the dark.
I measure time by sun stripped
on scoured bark, how it traces its hand
over its eyes & closes them
like a lover at a funeral.
when the day finishes, I feel the need to speak.
to break the bread when the light hesitates
to reach out & hold it, just once.
